Established in May 2015 as a not-for-profit organisation, Open Gardens Canberra was formed to continue the tradition of private open gardens established by Open Gardens Australia. Each Spring and Autumn a diverse range of interesting and beautiful open gardens are opened in Canberra, Queanbeyan and surrounds.
The private open gardens may be visited by members as part of their Membership. Visitors are welcome for a cash-only entry fee of $8. Children under 18 accompanying members and visitors have free entry. Members also enjoy some members-only garden openings.
We concluded our Spring 2019 gardens season on 23-24 November when more than 1,000 visitors enjoyed the four diverse gardens opened in Bungendore. Planning for the Autumn 2020 season is well underway. The first gardens of the season will open on the weekend of 14-15 March 2020.
