Welcome to Open Gardens Canberra

Each Spring and Autumn Open Gardens Canberra opens a diverse range of interesting and beautiful open gardens in Canberra, Queanbeyan and surrounds.

The private open gardens may be visited by members as part of their Membership. Visitors are welcome for an entry fee. Bookings are necessary for both members and visitors.  Children under 18 accompanying members and visitors have free entry and do not need to book.  Members also enjoy some members-only garden openings.

This spring Open Gardens Canberra held a limited open garden season while we developed and implemented effective Covid-19 safety practices. Our first open garden was in October and the final four were in mid November, in Bungendore. We were thrilled with the enthusiasm of members for continuing to visit open gardens at this unusual time. Thank you for your patience and adaptability as we all – members, visitors, garden owners and volunteers – adjusted to using bookings as part of our CovidSafe plan. We are now busy planning our Autumn 2021 program which will include many of the cancelled Autumn 2020 gardens which we know you were looking forward to.
