Garden Notes
The Garden Notes are written by the garden owners and often tell the story of their garden. We try to provide Garden Notes ahead of the opening for every garden, but unfortunately this is not always possible. Garden Notes will usually be available in the week prior to the garden opening and will remain available online after the garden has opened. A list of available Garden Notes (in pdf format) can be found by using the 'Notes' link next to each garden or the link below.
Bushfire Information
With summer upon us and the bushfire season underway we strongly recommend that you check your local fire service website prior to travelling to gardens in fire prone areas. Cancellations due to bushfires will be listed here as soon as possible.
