The Killala Post Garden

When visiting over a weekend of staying for a week or so, take the time to wander through the garden at Killala Post. At any time of the year there is something different at it’s best.

Our 4 acres of garden surrounds consist of an established mix of European plantings including fruit and nut trees, roses, hydrangeas, camellias and magnolias as well as many natives that attract the wildlife. You may see wallabies, koalas and echidnas and a multitude of bird species including king parrots, blue fairy wrens, honey eaters, rosellas, bower birds. We’ve even spotted the odd owl and hear them most nights. The garden is managed according to organic principles and no herbicides or poisons are used.
