Sydney Bible Garden

A wedding in a recent magazine was held at a picturesque garden in Sydney, so I decided to hunt it down and share it with you.

The Sydney Bible Garden is located in Palm Beach on Sydney’s North Shore and run by volunteers who maintain, improve and care for the garden. Based on a Welsh bible garden , the garden is planted on a biblical chronological order, commencing with the plants mentioned in the book of Genesis and ending with a plant to represent immortality. There are over 143 varieties of plants within the garden.

The garden overlooks the ocean and Palm Beach and with it’s enclosed nature feels like a secret escape from the hustle and bustle of nearby Sydney.

The garden can hold 60 guests (though less are preferred) and acoustic music is permitted.

Find more information on the garden and how to book via the Pittwater Council website.

    You should see what Pittwater Council did to the Bible Garden now. Forget the photos above. They completely ripped this beautiful spot apart, removed shrubs and trees which had separated the garden from the neighbouring houses and the street. Instead they built massive sandstone walls, stairs and railings. The old peaceful charm was replaced by the boring coolness of modern landscape design. It is now just another piece of land that was destroyed by so called landscape designers. What a disgrace!
    We knew Bible Garden since 1985 when we moved to Australia and we were proud to show it to our overseas visitors for the last 27 years. When I saw what Pittwater Council did to it now, I nearly cried.
    Background: The Bible Garden was handed over in a ceremony to Pittwater Council in 2006 from its previous owner, the Bible Garden Memorial Trust because the members of the trust were unable to maintain the garden any longer.
