For a whimsical experience, visit the Fairy Garden in Broadmeadow. This enchanted grotto created by a neighbour, the late Merv Moyle features trees, winding paths, lots of plants and many figurines. It’s a lovely little spot to take young kids. It was created back in the 1970s when Merv started to transform overgrown public land into an area where his kids could play. It’s clear that magical spot was a labour of love.
It feels like an enchanted grotto with trees, winding paths, lots of plants and many figurines.
Walk through and spot fairies, frogs, gorillas and the seven dwarves.
Sit in the sun while little ones write or scribble a letter to the Fairy Queen as there’s a mailbox for kids to mail their letters. The seating area is the perfect spot for a picnic or tea party.
