The Gargarro Botanic Garden will see the creation of a unique and world-class botanical installation, representing the premier regional botanic gardens destination in Australia, and the jewel in the crown of the Campaspe region. Kilter Rural is proud to support the project and the community of Girgarre.

This year Kilter has committed a donation to the project. Kilter aims to foster strong connections within the communities surrounding the Australian Farmlands Funds Landscapes to enable constructive dialogue on initiatives that may have impact and to ensure the economic benefits of the operations are shared with the local community where possible.  

It will be bold, it will be beautiful and it will exhibit best practice from a design, sustainability and indigenous plantings perspective. The region’s rich history will be woven through the stories shared in this unique setting; making future generations proud to visit and cherish Gargarro. 

A bold project 

Gargarro Botanic Garden is the jewel in the crown of the Campaspe region. The planned project is to create a bold, beautiful and best practice garden, celebrating indigenous history in a parkland that stimulates the senses. 

An exemplar garden 

Gargarro will be an exemplar regional botanic garden. Gargarro’s design reflects the dry landscapes of the Campaspe region, presents an interplay between geometric water features and indigenous flora, and houses all these elements in a native garden setting. 

A community space 

Gargarro Botanic Gardens offers locals and visitors a place to discover, learn, relax and connect. You can get involved by joining the Gargarro ‘Friends of the Garden’ or offering your support in a variety of ways. 

A part of the trail 

Gargarro Botanic Garden forms an integral connection between Bendigo & Shepparton as part of the Midland Botanic Garden Trail. The gardens also forms an important part of the extensive Campaspe History & Nature Trail.
