Landscape Architects TLC have produced this concept perspective for Girgarre's proposed 'Gargarro' botanic garden.

The Girgarre community’s proposed botanic garden ‘Gargarro’ looks set to provide a unique destination for visitors to the Campaspe region and rural Victoria.

As well as a large events lawn and amphitheatre, the garden will have water tower lookouts, an ephemeral river bed and water channels.

There will be walking and cycling trails, a barbecue area for families and groups of friends to socialise and several native garden areas.

‘Gargarro’ will also host a range of rare and endangered plants which once flourished in the region.

A area has been reserved for a small future housing development with several lots having the opportunity to lookout to the botanic garden.
