Garden is real wonderland
YOU will step into a magical world when you visit Heather Marshall’s garden in Woodgate.
Her tiny cottage is nestled in the Woodgate Beach Tourist Park surrounded by a wonderland of tiny creatures, with nature’s own donation of rocks to guard and protect the garden’s little treasures and surprises.
Ms Marshall will greet you with a rib-cracking hug and a cuppa before the guided tour of her garden.
As the caravan park fills with holiday makers, visitors are always intrigued by the new additions to her garden.
“My garden gets a lot of visitors and the children are most fascinated.”
Ms Marshall has been in Woodgate since the early 90s and says Woodgate becomes part of you.
“It’s the best place to be. I have Woodgate in my soul,” Ms Marshall said.
With a spring in her step, she is set to celebrate her 90th birthday later this year.
“I keep myself busy and active in the community,” she said.
Ms Marshall volunteers her time to many organisations and charity events.
The humble lady isn’t much for talking about herself or her achievements, she rather remain anonymous and continue to support her community.
“I get great pleasure seeing the faces of the children when they venture through my garden.”
When the school holidays are on Ms Marshall is kept on her toes as excited youngsters listen to the stories of her magical garden.
Ms Marshall encourages anyone visiting Woodgate to stop by and wander through her garden.
There is a surprise behind every plant, flower and tree.
MAGIC: Heather Marshall will welcome you with a hug.
