Join Wendy Whiteley in conversation with author Janet Hawley to take a behind the scenes look at Wendy Whiteley's Secret Garden in Lavender Bay.

What started as a project to clean up the rubbish from the park in front of Wendy's Lavender Bay home has become a major tourist attraction and with the announcement of a 60 year lease in 2015, by the then Premier Mike Baird, the Garden's foreseeable future is now guaranteed.

Janet Hawley is the author behind the book Wendy Whiteley and the Secret Garden and will go through many photographs showing the development of the Garden, whilst Wendy will share stories of the characters, frustration and joy she has experienced along the way.

Wendy and Janet will be happy to sign books after the event.

This talk is being presented in conjunction with the exhibition 'Brett Whiteley: Other Places (Somewhere Else)', An Art Gallery of NSW and Brett Whiteley Studio touring exhibition, developed in partnership with the Cairns Regional Gallery.

Bookings essential, phone (02) 4304 7550
