Wendy Whiteley’s Secret Garden, Lavender Bay

This hidden gem is gorgeous on so many levels. Firstly, it’s a beautiful sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of Sydney life. But it also has a touching story behind it: when Wendy Whiteley lost her husband, famed Australian artist Brett Whiteley, to drug addiction, she poured her love and grief into a work of art in a small plot of land in front of her home. She transformed a weedy overgrown, litter-ridden patch into a gorgeous garden sanctuary. It also happens to be dog-friendly :-) Enjoy exploring this hidden garden in the heart of Sydney.
