Where it all began
In 1966 Dutch born Theo Puik and his wife Hanneke emigrated to Australia. After a number of years and careful planning they decided to build their very own dream garden.
Work commenced in 1974 to turn two hectares of sandy scrubland North of Perth into a mini golf garden playground. With incredible vision, they embarked on a planned two year project which eventually took seven years to complete.
1000 tonnes of organic waste, 700 tonnes of limestone and thousands of plants were lovingly moulded and shaped into the stunning waterways and gardens seen today.
Now there is little evidence of the parks humble beginnings, however it does show that with vision and commitment ordinary people can do extraordinary things. The park is now owned and operated by Theo and Hanneke’s daughter and son-in-law, Nicole and Paul Woodcock and has continued to grow and flourish.
