Daily Garden: Lady Sarah’s English Austrailan Outback

Catherine Martin is a set designer but the garden that she created for the movie Australia is worth a study to steal style ideas.

Australia garden set designed by catherine martin movie lady sarah

Catherine has designed many sets (academy and tony award winning), but this is the first full scale house and garden.  The design was meant to reflect what a transplanted English Lady might create when plopped down in the middle of the Australian outback. (as is the the story for the epic movie Australia, in which this garden is featured)  Even though much of it isn’t real (the Baob tree is made of plaster of paris) – the challenges that were faced were real (think shrub eating kangaroos to replace munching deer).   The garden is a beautiful set don’t you think?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
