Dennis Hundscheidt’s Upcoming Open Garden Weekend


Dennis Hundscheidt’s garden in suburban Sunnybank has been voted one of the best private gardens in Australia, and has recently been featured in a German coffee table book as one of the best Tropical Gardens in the world!

Dennis spent most of his childhood in The Oasis Tourist Gardens in Sunnybank, where his father was manager. It was here, in what was then considered to be one of QLDs most beautiful gardens, that Dennis began to develop his love for gardening. He eventually became head gardener and followed this path for 15 yrs. He has pursued his growing passion over the following years, taking trips overseas collecting rare and unusual seeds, winning multiple awards for gardens he created as an employee, & founding several specialized gardening societies.

When his parents retired, Dennis bought his old family home on a quarter acre block in Sunnybank, and slowly converted it into his own tropical paradise. Today he owns three adjoining blocks and has recently celebrated 25 years of opening his “Best Tropical Garden in Australia” to the public.

Dennis now runs his own business, sharing his knowledge through conducting Tropical Garden Consultations & speaking at various gardening functions. His garden has been featured on such shows as Bourke’s Backyard, Gardening Australia and Jamie Drurie’s Australia’s Best Backyards. He opens his garden for public viewing in February each year.


Dennis firmly believes that the foundation for successful gardening is a thriving & healthy soil. He has been using ORGANIC XTRA exclusively on his garden for many years – and the results speak for themselves.
