Established in 1965, Karwarra is one of the few public gardens where native plants are used exclusively, giving visitors the opportunity to see how they can be used effectively as part of a landscaped garden. The two-hectare garden is one of the Dandenong Ranges hidden jewels featuring more than 1400 different species of native plants, a nursery, community room and with filtered views of Silvan Dam. Karwarra is responsible for the Garden Plant Conservation Association of Australia Boronia and Telopea (Waratah. The Waratahs produce a stunning display of colour in the garden in late September to mid October.
