KEN DUNCAN GALLERY
Friday 21st May 2021
These gardens were a gift from Gosfords “Sister City” Edogawa (near Tokyo). They were designed on a principal of Heian period (700AD).
The various pathways lead through traditional Japanese features which include a Japanese Teahouse, a raked (white) stone garden, a pond compete with Koi and many stone lanterns and other artefacts. Another day done, all that is left now is the drive back down the Freeway, then across the Hawkesbury and set our sights for home.
Today we head north out of the city confines to the Central Coast. In the coastal suburb of Erina, we visit the gallery of one of the most well-known landscape photographers in Australia. Ken has dedicated his life to this art form and here we gain an insight into his handiwork.
Thanks to his ongoing quest for excellence, this is now the largest privately owned photographic gallery in Australia.
The gallery is situated in a mix of natural bush and andscaped gardens. Our day here starts with a Gallery tour, this will include our own personal commentary from one of his staff. As a bonus for visiting the Gallery we all receive a Ken Duncan postcard. The presentation also includes an audio- visual experience After some free time to explore the gallery at our own pace, we retreat to the Sanctuary café where lunch has been prepared for us.Before leaving the “Coast” one more stop at the dogawa Commemorative Gardens in East Gosford.
