Autumn Fair at Sydney’s Own New Secret Garden.
The Secret Garden, run by the North West Disability Service is a person-centric, not-for-profit organisation providing group-based activities for people with a disability. They are one of the largest providers of services to the disabled in Sydney and focus on assisting their clients with community engagement through their recreational and skill development activities. Being a not-for-profit organisation, the service relies heavily on volunteers and fund raising to keep costs to their clients at a minimum.

- A mass of market stalls
