Did you know that there's a whole section of the Growing Illawarra Natives website dedicated to designing gardens using local native plant species? It's not a detailed step-by-step guide (there are many of these available already), but gives lots of tips on what species will work well in a few common styles of garden. 

Here's the link: https://blog.growingillawarranatives.org/p/garden-design-using-illawarra-natives.html With everything from bushtucker to verge gardens, there are heaps of ideas included. 
A few of the many volunteers who contributed to the website helped to develop this material, including Louise BrodieGinny SadubinPenny Sadubin, Jenny Clapham, Katie Wright and Ryan Hogan. Kath Gadd made many helpful suggestions. Huge thanks to all contributors!
