Lemon Scented Lawn

Clayton Lemon scented garden

The Lemon Scented Lawn is one of the largest gardens on the Clayton campus. Situated north of the Campus Centre, the gardens earn their name from the large majestic Lemon-Scented Gum trees (Corymbia citriodora) which are planted throughout. With its wide expanse of grass, water fountains, laptop recharge points and the Clayton Sound Shell, the Lemon Scented Lawn is a popular place for student activities and lazing between classes.

Did you know? The essential oil of the lemon-scented gum consists mainly of citronellal (80%). Unrefined oils from the tree are used in perfumery, and refined oils in insect repellents.
