The railway garden was established by The Yerrinbool Village Group (YVG) to celebrate the railway centenary in 2018. The garden is on railway land and operates through a beautification license issued by Transport NSW to YVG
The garden is cared for by a dedicated group of volunteers who meet each Monday to weed, plant, prune and pick the plant harvest and socialise over a cup of tea or coffee.
The rocky clay soil has improved over time enabling many natives to establish themselves successfully. Over time the garden has evolved to become an eclectic mix of cottage, herb and native garden
There is a dedicated full sun patch to attract our native pollinators whose habitat was destroyed by the nearby bushfires. There is also a shaded area where ferns, bromeliads, begonias and native orchids are being grown.
