Awaken your senses at the Sensory Garden

Hence its name, the Sensory Gardens is a unique garden that is filled with magic and sensory experience, especially for people with no sight- opportunities to feel, touch and smell the many aromas and textures of the Australian bush can be experienced.

Opening in August 2001 and located in The Entrance North, the gardens are home to an abundance of native trees and plants, as well as a viewing platform that overlooks the impressive Tuggerah Lakes, pathways, bridges, comfortable seats, and weather shelters.

Displays of the flora include grevilleas, grafted flowering gum trees, bottle brush and kangaroo paw are some of the species found at the gardens. Many trees, plants and shrubs have been donated by members of the community, adding a special touch to this free attraction.

The Sensory Gardens is also home to Memorials to the Returned Servicemens League and the National Servicemens Association.

Enjoy a picnic, a lovely scenic stroll or just relax and watch the day go by being surrounded by the aromas and sounds of the gardens. Whatever, it is you want to enjoy, the Sensory Gardens is undoubtedly a place of interest you want to visit.

The Sensory Garden is pram, stroller and wheelchair-friendly and is suitable for all fitness levels and ages.

Getting Here:

Vehicle access is from Wilfred Barrett Drive, and there is a free carpark on-site, outside of the presently closed Pelican's Wharf Restaurant.

A shared cycleway from the Northern end of The Entrance Bridge to Two Shores Caravan Park passes the garden and is another way to get here by bike or foot.

There is toilet facilities available adjacent to the garden.
