Garden DesignFest is the largest designer open garden weekend held in Melbourne, Started under the patronage of John Patrick this event commenced in 2004 and has since raised some $285,000 for worthwhile charities. The event attracts visitors locally, interstate and internationally.

The 2012 event continued to account for every possible taste from family to formal, traditional to artistic and native to Hollywood. In all, 26 gardens, all designed by landscape professionals including Paul Bangay, Fiona Brockhoff, Rick Eckersley and Steve Taylor were on show. Each designer was in attendance at their garden to meet and talk with visitors about their garden and answer any questions they had.

Garden DesignFest will be back again in 2014 on November 15 and 16. In the meantime you can keep up to date with developments with visits to this website and the Garden DesignFest website.
