William Ricketts Sanctuary
William Ricketts Sanctuary Review
Fern gardens, moss-covered rocks, waterfalls, towering mountain ash, and kiln-fired sculptures of Aborigines and Australian native animals fill this 4-acre property on Mt. Dandenong. William Ricketts, who established the sanctuary in the 1930s, meant it to stand as an embodiment of his philosophy: that people must act as custodians of the natural environment as the Aborigines did.
