In 1985, Ulrike Klein AO co-founded the internationally acclaimed skin care label, Jurlique. The state of the art and environmentally sustainable UKARIA Cultural Centre, which opened in August 2015, was funded by the Klein Family and built on what was once the Jurlique Farm, where many of the herbs, flowers and plants were grown for natural skin care products. Renowned for using the best in biodynamic and organic ingredients, these values have influenced the design and vision for the UKARIA Cultural Centre and are incorporated in the hospitality product offering.

Leading architect Anton Johnson has designed every aspect of the Centre with the sensory experience of the visitor in mind. Parking bays are nestled into the edges of the garden, and there are multiple entry points that pass through native flora, traditional roses, lavender and other aromatic herbs. Large sculptures, a dry stone labyrinth, shady trees and a water feature complement the idyllic setting.

The garden is designed to provide a flowing transition between the concert platform and the natural bushland celebrating the European heritage and the herbs and flowers which provided the life-force for every Jurlique product. The layout of the garden was designed by Winnie Pelz, the planting layout by Deane Butcher and all hard landscaping was done by Adelaide Innovative Landscaping.
