Central Valley Gardens

The dramatic zig and zag shapes of the Central Valley Path and gardens are flanked by giant steps that form a giant leaf when viewed from the air. Twenty-four individual gardens line the path which sweeps down the hill from the Village Centre to the entrance gates. Each bed has a single species chosen to achieve a stunning visual display of colour and texture. The first plantings have started. These gardens have been made possible by the generosity of individuals.

The opposing side of the garden beds along the Central Valley Path is dedicated to an avenue of ceremonial trees planted by visiting dignitaries and world leaders.
