STORY

The Coal Loader Cottage Community Garden is set in a former Coal Loader industrial site where coal was delivered, stockpiled and transferred to passenger and cargo ships until the early 1990s. The site is now The Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability which includes the Coal Loader Platform, community gardens, allotments,  Community Native Nursery and many other interesting facilities which can be visited when viewing the Cottage Garden.

The garden was conceived in 2005 when Council invited the local community to participate in the planning and design of the area. Enthusiastic residents have followed environmentally sustainable principles and have been gardening, learning, laughing and enjoying the garden’s harvest through the seasons since 2007.

Come and see the community gardens and individual allotments where wicking, self-watering and raised beds are all featured. Why not also visit the onsite cafe that opens at 7am?
