In 1995, the Rotary Club of Werribee established a sister-club relationship with the Rotary Club of Sapporo North in Japan. The bond was strengthened when it was decided to build a Japanese garden in the grounds of the City of Wyndham offices in Werribee.
Members of the Sapporo North club travelled to Melbourne to assist in providing expert advice on the design and construction of the garden. After 8 days of construction by members of the club and other volunteers, the garden was opened in February 1997. Today, it is still proudly on display at the council offices.
The garden is a place of spiritual and religious significance. It is designed for quiet meditation and deep reflection on your life, your relationships and how you relate to the harmonious balance of nature in order to achieve peace of mind. The rocks and their placement are the most important element in this garden.
