This garden was designed by Lynda Jellyman, and murals are by Wayne Robinson and Frances Esveld. The garden was installed and is maintained by Eastwest College staff, students and volunteers.

Around 300 ‘Early Pearly’ camellias were planted in 2004 to form the outline of the garden in the shape of a Celtic cross. The rest of the garden was installed from 2008-2011.
