Lavender Bay, New South Wales, Australia
- Entrance via Clark Park. 1 Harbourview Cres, Lavender Bay NSW 2060.
The public garden known as 'Wendy's Secret Garden' was established in 1992. It was named informally by local residents after Wendy Whiteley who cleared the derelict land and established the gardens. The land belongs to the NSW State Railways but had been neglected for decades. In October 2015 it was leased to North Sydney Council on 30 year lease with a 30 year option. It is now a popular location for weddings and tourists.
