Home & Away is filmed at Palm Beach on Sydney’s northern beaches. In the same seaside suburb is the Bible Garden.

Julie Bennett is one of the Friends of the Bible Garden.

As you imagine a grove of gospels or orchard of cross references, Julie explained to Hope Afternoons that the free, picturesque public space is “a place of quiet contemplation with plants mentioned in the Bible”.

From olive trees to hibiscus, the garden was established in the 1960s and has grown to be a peaceful place that invites us all to soak in the glory of God and his creation.

Listen to the full interview with Julie in the player above.
