New Leaf Nursery is a bizarre, crazy cool place to visit in Ingelside. It has some amazing attractions for kids and really great plants for the adults.

 

If you’re needing to get some plants or something extraordinary that you can’t find elsewhere and you’ve got the kids with you, you have to check out New Leaf Nursery.

Where is New Leaf Nursery

 

Location

 

New Leaf Nursery is in Ingelside. I had no idea where Ingelside was until I visited.

 

 

Ingelside is a small suburb on Sydney’s North Shore between Terry Hills and Warriewood.

 

The official address is 224 Powderworks Road.

Parking 

 

There is parking right outside the entrance but the entrance is on Wilson Avenue. I would rather put Wilson Avenue, Ingelside into your GPS than Powderworks road. Or, put corner Powderworks Road and Wilson Avenue.

What is at New Leaf Nursery

 

The Plants

 

New Leaf Nursery is a nursery like any other in that it sells plants. Granted the plants it sells are pretty diverse – from tea plants to curry leaf plants to blueberry and strawberry plants. There are water plants and mango trees.

The Incredible Set Up

 

What is completely different is the way the whole place is set up. It is really theatrical all within the gardening theme.  

 

Your kids will love being able to pick a mode of transport to travel through the Nursery. My kids rode around on little tikes coupe, a tricycle and some baby bikes. They couldn’t settle on one.

There is something to look at, everywhere you look:

 

  • garden mannequins hanging over the trellis and hidden in corners,
  • golf balls hidden in all the plants
  • plants laden on an unused car, baths and basins, shelves, sheds and in multi-coloured pots
  • statues of animals, people and garden gnomes
  • a red tractor.

Petting Area

Before we had even entered we saw two goats across the road. They were in a field having a good climb over various structures.

 

When you enter the nursery you’ll see various areas set up with chickens, roosters and Guinea pigs. The kids can go into the big area at the very back near the play area but not the others.

 

 

Play Area

 

I wasn’t sure that there was a play area but there is. It’s not the same as the play structures at the two Terry Hills Nurseries but there is a space.

 

The space has two slides leaning up against some other structures. The smaller slide can be access up some wooden steps and the other by climbing up some tyres. There is a tepee, a little kitchenette and two old school animal rocking horses.

Coffee

 

New Leaf Nursery sells coffee. Fantastic stuff. I didn’t get to check this out but I will next time we visit.

 

I’m not sure my kids are going to let me go to any other Nursery now that they know New Leaf exists.

 

 

Are you looking for other slightly obscure things to do with the kids? You could try one of the things listed below: 

 

A walk along Curl Curl Lagoon with bikes, trikes, scooters and prams. 

 

Let the kids get hands on at the Australian Museum

 

Spend a morning at Potters Cafe in Pittwater, RSL

 

Drag the kids to the Northern Beaches Markets

 

Have dinner with the kids at The Newport
