Friends of the McKay Gardens

The H.V. McKay Memorial Gardens are an important historical feature of the Sunshine area of Melbourne, Australia. Begun in 1909 by H.V.McKay, the gardens are listed with the National Trust and the National Heritage Register as a site of national historical significance. The Friends of the McKay Gardens are dedicated to the preservation and maintenance of the gardens.

This Blog has been created to record the events and activities of the Friends group – their meetings, social events and work in the Gardens. It is also intended to document the history, condition and development of the Gardens over time.
