Australian Heritage Festival: Grand Melbourne Gardens – in conversation with Kimbal Baker

Join a conversation with Kimbal Baker, well-known Melbourne photographer. In 2017, Kim collaborated with the late David Wilkinson to produce Grand Melbourne Gardens, a fascinating glimpse inside some of Melbourne's best public and private gardens.

From private spaces to grand public places, Melbourne is blessed with an abundance of gardens. David Wilkinson and Kimbal Baker’s book presents forty of those gardens, each with its unique character. Join us for an intimate conversation with Kimbal on his work, with the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of the book Grand Melbourne Gardens, followed by light refreshments in the magnificent gardens at Rippon Lea.
