Throughout Spring come and take a stroll through one of Ku-ring-gai Council's hidden gems for a stunning spring flower display.

Swain Gardens was created in the 1960s by Arthur Newling Swain. Mr Swain spent many years planting the garden and two full-time stonemasons spent ten years constructing the terraces and bridges. 

These beautiful gardens were bequeathed by Mr Swain to the National Trust in 1973 to benefit the community, the property was then given to Ku-ring-gai Council in 1982 and are managed as community land by the Council and supported a group of volunteers, The Friends of Swain Gardens.

Open daily 9am to 5pm this tranquil garden turns on a Spring display for all to enjoy as you wander through the winding paths.
