Gosford formed a Sister City Agreement with Edogawa Japan in 1988. A gift from Edogawa, the Edogawa Commemorative Garden was officially opened in September 1994 and has been designed in accordance to the original principles of the Japanese Heian (700AD) period.
Extending over 4,000m2, the garden is based on a traditional ‘shuyu’ (strolling style) garden, incorporating Japanese features. With meandering pathways, a roofed Japanese pavilion overlooking the Koi pond, raked dry stone garden and traditional Japanese teahouse, the garden offers a tranquil setting in which to relax and enjoy art and nature.
Gosford Classic Car Museum was born out of a passion for the artistry of automobiles. Covering an expanse of more than 11,000 square metres, the museum began accumulating classic vehicles in June 2015.
It now showcases approximately 450 cars, with a total value of over $70 million. 95% of the vehicles in the collection have been bought within Australia, with the remaining cars coming from the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.
One of the museum’s first purchases was a collection of 53 cars from the Rambler Museum of Western Australia that were previously owned by John Ivy.
The museum now welcomes automotive enthusiasts to enjoy and appreciate the magnificence of these classic and vintage cars and motorcycles. With 35 Ferrari’s on display, 25 Communist Cars and the full range of Holden’s from 1948 – 1978, there’s an impressive range of vehicles to please everyone.

It’s here that we grow and handpick the botanicals that give our gin its distinctive character. We reckon the fresher the botanicals the more fragrant the gin. And it’s that scent that we love most. It’s why we use ‘enfleurage’, a thousand-year-old technique, to extract the purest perfume from our hero botanical, Murraya, without the use of heat. This makes the delicate Murraya come alive, with cues of Jasmine, Honeysuckle and Orange Blossom. It’s all about capturing our ingredients as purely as possible. Distilling the essence of our summer garden and delivering it perfectly to yours. We call it Garden Grown Gin.
The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and
around the world.
During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.
With your help, we can make lives better in your community and around the world.
Why should I donate to The Rotary Foundation?
Your donation makes a difference to those who need our help most. More than 90 percent of donations go directly to supporting our service projects around the world.
How does The Rotary Foundation use donations?
Our 35,000 clubs carry out sustainable service projects that support our six causes. With donations like yours, we’ve wiped out 99.9 percent of all polio cases. Your donation also trains future peacemakers, supports clean water, and strengthens local economies.
What impact can one donation have?
It can save a life. A child can be protected from polio with as little as 60 cents. Our partners make your donation go even further. For every $1 Rotary commits to polio eradication, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $2.
We are experiencing another drought with respect to prospective new members.

27 Members/partners attended the Baulkham Hills 2153 Restaurant last on Tuesday night. A delightful meal, with lots of good fellowship around the three tables. The restaurant normally limits the customer numbers to 40, but due to the negotiation skills of John they extending that to 65 last night to accommodate 30 for us. As a result of the extra numbers the wait staff who are in training were challenged to keep up service. However, we can forgive them that.
