About Us

Welcome to Avalon Nursery!

Hi, we are David and Joanna, the owners of Avalon Nursery. Avalon Nursery has been an established name in Ballarat for almost 25 years, originally founded on its current site in Haddon, 10 minutes outside of Ballarat, for the propagation of native tube stock. In 2016, we purchased Avalon Nursery for a well needed change of direction in life, bringing Joanna back to her horticultural roots, having been involved nursery industry since the age of 16.

With our team, we had a vision to not only create a diverse and thriving plant nursery, but to also create a community environment, a space for the entire community to enjoy. A large part of this plan came to fruition with the opening of ‘In the Sticks’ Café in early 2020 at Haddon. The café, as well as the 2 acres of landscaped gardens with winding paths, picnic tables, large grassed area and a rotunda create a community space where everyone can gather.


In early 2020, an opportunity came up to take on a nursery in central Warrnambool, and never ones to do things by halves, we and the team went for it. With Cudgee local Tahlia at the helm of our Warrnambool nursery, are incredibly grateful for the warm welcome we have had into the Warrnambool community.

At both our Haddon & Warrnambool nurseries, we and our team pride ourselves on the range and quality of our plants and providing exceptional customer service and gardening advice with our team’s wide range of local horticultural knowledge.
