LIKE A GOOD PAINTING, A GREAT LANDSCAPE BEGINS WITH A VISION
Yellow comes in many shades, but there’s a standout that is the Snowy River Wattle yellow. Right now the wattle is bursting its buttons throughout Wombat Bend, an inspirational five-acre Dixons Creek property. It’s the favourite wattle of owners, horticulturists Sue Forrester and Bill Molyneux.
They were planted 40 years ago, when Wombat Bend was just a treeless paddock, and grown from seed gathered along the reaches of the mighty Snowy River. Back then, the couple spent their free time crossing Australia in their Land Rover campervan, exploring wild country, spending weeks in isolation immersed in a world of natural history, seeking new plants that would strongly influence Australia’s gardens, horticulture and landscape design.
