With Wendy Whiteley & author of Wendy Whiteley and the Secret Garden, Janet Hawley.
For more than twenty years, Wendy Whiteley worked to create a huge public garden at the foot of her harbourside home in Lavender Bay, Sydney. The story behind the garden, and the events in Wendy’s life that led to its creation, are beautifully portrayed by award winning journalist Janet Hawley in the book, Wendy Whiteley and the Secret Garden.
Join Wendy and Janet at the Cairns Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre as Wendy talks about her life with artist Brett Whiteley and the creation of her garden.
Limited copies of Wendy Whiteley and the Secret Garden books are available from the Cairns Art Gallery shop for $79.95 and there will be an opportunity to have your book signed after the event.
A cash bar and nibbles will be available on the night with thanks to The Wine Tradition Pty Ltd.
Spaces are limited. No door tickets available
