Alexandra and District Open Gardens Weekend

03 5772 2287

28 - 29 Oct 2017

Now in its 27th year, the Alexandra & District Open Gardens Weekend offers beautiful gardens ranging from small manicured town spaces to expansive farm properties with views of mountain ranges, rolling green hills and river valleys.

This year seven open venues are offered, five of them new to the list, ensuring new ideas are being showcased. Included are gardens in Marysville, Buxton, Alexandra and Yarck.

The hard work garden owners contribute in preparing their properties during cold frosty winter days is hugely rewarded by the burst of spring growth and blossoms when this district is proudly at its best. Experience remarkable views, pristine air and a warm country greeting at each open venue.

Some special attractions include botanical artists, airbrush painting and hand painted card demonstrations . Garden sculptures, handmade tools and plant sales will also feature. A delicious fresh catering van and an excellent coffee van complete the picture. Chance to win one of two superb accommodation, dinner and breakfast packages at Holmesglen at Eildon.

Less than two hours from Melbourne, visitors are encouraged to plan ahead and allow two days to enjoy the gardens with numerous attractions at many venues.
