ANGAIR members, Margot and Peter Matthews have recently revamped the display at the Information Notice Board in the Heathland Garden, Melba Pde, Point Roadknight.
The garden showcases our local flora, and was established in 1996 by Anglesea Coast Action, the predecessor of Friends of the Anglesea Coast.
The new displays show some historic photographs of the development of the garden. Other historic aspects, such as the Land Slip at Soapy Rocks in the 1960’s, and the winding bush track to Point Roadknight at the beginning of the 20th Century, have display articles.
Many of the plants in the Heathland Garden are labelled with their scientific and common names. One of the displays on the Notice Board shows a plant list for the garden. An asterisk alongside a plant name indicates that the plant specimen has a label. If you require new plants for your private garden, a visit to the Heathland Garden will show you many examples of our local flora.
Other gardens in Anglesea, with Indigenous plants labelled with their scientific and common name, are the garden at the ANGAIR Natural History Centre and the Indigenous Garden at the Community Centre. This latter garden is located between two gravel roads that enter and exit the Community Centre car park from McMillan Street, west of the Ambulance depot and east of the Community Garden.
