Some of our Garden projects would not be possible without the support of State and Federal grant funding. This funding is a vital source of revenue that helps us to deliver projects that support the local community's needs and priorities.

Grant funding, and partnering with the State and Federal Government, also provides us with an opportunity to:

  • plan for the long-term sustainability and resilience of our community
  • carry out innovative and strategic initiatives that address local needs and priorities, such as:
    • environmental sustainability
    • social inclusion
    • economic development
    • disaster resilience
  • leverage the Garden's own resources and expertise to achieve better outcomes for our community.

Discovery Garden

The 'Everyone Can Play Grant' was set up as part of the NSW Government’s commitment to building stronger, resilient communities through inclusive play. The 2021-22 funding round included an allocation of up to $5 million in funding to create new and upgraded inclusive play spaces.

  • The NSW Government kindly granted more than $500,000 to the Garden to help rebuild the sensory garden destroyed in the 2019 New Year's Eve bushfire.
  • The grant panel named our proposal as an ‘exemplar and destination project’ that would showcase innovation and inclusivity.
  • We have finalised plans for our new Discovery Garden, and we expect to complete construction by August 2024.
  • You can read about the Discovery Garden Project and see our concept plan. The concept plan includes details of the proposed features and a visualisation of the discovery garden.
