Joining Open Gardens Canberra

Open Gardens Canberra is an incorporated association based on membership. We have a strong following of garden lovers in Canberra and the surrounding region.

Members will have free entry to all open gardens for a year. Our membership year starts at the beginning of the open garden season, ie on 1 September, and it runs through until 31 August. With our annual membership fee of $25, that’s a bargain!

If you join after 1 March in any year, you will have free entry to all open gardens until 31 August of the following year. That’s an even bigger bargain!

One membership = one person.

Children under 18 accompanied by either a member or visitor will be welcome at all open gardens at no charge so we don’t offer a family rate. And $25 is such a low membership fee, we can’t afford to offer a concession rate.

Garden visitors will be encouraged to become members so they can join in our other activities, or they can pay $8 per garden visit – there’s an extra incentive for you to join. Members will be encouraged to donate to the charity chosen by the garden owner so that we can keep up the Open Gardens tradition of fund-raising for charity.
