Garden Fete at Drummoyne Far West Home (Photographer: Sam Hood, Courtesy of State Library NSW)

During the late 19th Century and the end of the Victorian era, a more diverse and confident colonial Australia began to emerge. Technology, science, new forms of communication, and robust democracy heralded the start of the modern era. 

The Australian Garden History Society presents a lecture by Dr Greg Johnson, the second in a series on Australian garden writing since 1788. Dr Johnson will explore the publications and the writers in the period from 1888 to 1938. The talk will cover writers and writing during the Federation, Edwardian, WWI and depression periods.
