Open Garden Dates 2023 . .

FINAL chance to visit “Taman Air” so put these dates in your Calendar NOW!!

As seen on Better Homes and Gardens (November 4th, 2022) René has decided to open our garden for the FINAL time. We had made the decision to have 2022 as our “final” opening but due to torrential rain and flooding in Brisbane (February 2022) many people could not visit “Taman Air”.

So, below I have listed the dates for our Open Days and we are having ONE Open Night on the same weekend. Please check dates & times:


DATES: Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th February, 2023

TIME:   9.00 am to 3.00 pm

WHERE:  12 Furorie Street, Sunnybank Hills, QLD

ENTRY: $10 p/p (Children under 16 – Free)

** A portion of the entry fee is donated to charity **


DATES: Saturday 25th February, 2023 . . . ONE NIGHT ONLY !!

TIME:   7 pm to 9 pm

ENTRY: $10 p/p (Children under 16 – Free)

My tropical Balinese style garden, “Taman Air” (meaning Water garden) has been a work in progress for nearly 16 years.  I am on a 1370 m2 block (double block) of land. I have created an oasis in suburbia by planting many varieties of palms, cordylines, gingers and bromeliads.  I have built timber boardwalks and laid stone pathways throughout the garden to add character and a sense of adventure to the various “garden rooms”.

The “Balinese” style is created by adding water features, fish ponds, thatched roof pavilions, an authentic Balinese guest house and many traditional and modern hand carved statues adorn the garden throughout.

Throughout the garden I have fantastic 12 volt garden lighting, gas flares and a fogging system near the main pond.

Over the years, our garden has been featured on Burke’s Backyard, Better Homes & Gardens, Gardening Australia and various magazines.

Balinese Statues, artifacts, wall reliefs, lanterns & gifts will be available for sale throughout the Open Day Weekend.
The latest project completed 2 years ago was to fully tile the swimming pool in the Bali green stone, (Sukabumi) and install LED lighting. It looks great.

Dennis will also be here with plant sales on the Open Days only.

Cash or card accepted payment for plant sales.

Cash, credit or Direct Deposit is available for Island Imports.
