Created on disused NSW Rail Corp land Wendy Whitely has made a garden that is a lush, tranquil oasis with a million-dollar view. She began the garden at one end of the site, after the death of her former husband, artists Brett Whiteley, and just kept going until she reached the other end, where a railway siding exists on the edge of Sydney Harbour.
