The South Coast has a magic. The coast line is inundated with various rivers, bays, lagoons, and with forests that come down to the roaring coast. It has a mild climate with waters of intense colours, winning it the name of Sapphire Coast.

Thubbul, is the garden project of Philip Cox where ideas could be explained with nature. For over forty years its been a realisation and interpretation of what is, and was there. It is understanding the importance of careful intention, where vista, light, texture, colour and mass can be interpreted in a new and revealing way. It is working with nature, helping to understand time, content and meaning.

Thubbul – An Australian Garden is a 180 page book that documents this beautiful part of Australia.
