Reviews & Press

“Stunning images from WA photographers Freedom Garvey-Warr and Chris Gurney reveal the 20 gardens in all their glory but it is Julie’s passion for what’s gone into them that brings them to life…. Whether you’re a gardener or just a garden lover, you’ll be grateful Julie was given the keys to these secret gardens.” – Julie Hosking, The West Weekend.  

“Julie Kinney writes with subtle authority and charming insight. Her choice of gardens strikes just the right balance between styles, settings and purpose and she gives her readers the gift of memory; the memory she can recall after watching many of the gardens grow and change over 20 years or longer. I can think of no finer way to introduce gardeners around the world to this relatively new destination for travellers with gardening foremost in their minds.” – Trevor Nottle, South Australia Mediterranean Garden Society

"’The Garden Wanderer' would be invaluable for anyone intending to visit the Margaret River region and its gardens. I have visited a number of the gardens in the past and I now have a much better understanding and appreciation of the energy, enthusiasm and at times determination that was required to create and sustain these gardens and have a better knowledge of the their history and reason for being." – Linda Green, Garden Drum.

"Congratulations all round; Julie Kinney has written a beautifully restorative and fascinating show case of twenty of the Margaret River regions superb gardens, Freedom Garvey-Warr and Chris Gurney have once again graced the pages of a Margaret River Press publication with style and colour, what a superb team effort!" – Carol Seeley, Reading, Writing and Riesling.  

Feature article by Helen Young in The Australian Weekend Magazine.
