The Friends of H.V. McKay Gardens group was formed in 2007. We are interested in the restoration and maintenance of the historic H.V. McKay Memorial Gardens in Sunshine, Victoria, Australia. Our activities vary from running planting days and historical walks to choosing trees and making submissions to the local council.

We meet every two months on the first Saturday of that month. Meetings are held at the Presbyterian Church Meeting Room (in the grounds of the gardens) to plan up-coming projects. Anyone can join the group, even if you are not a gardener.
