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.
The first Autumn 2020 garden will open on the weekend of 14-15 March 2020. Sadly, the combined effects of drought and smoke have take their toll on the region’s gardens and gardeners alike, resulting in a few withdrawals from our program. The Emergent Food Forest Garden, and COGS Mitchell gardens which were to open in mid March will no longer go ahead. The remainder of the Autumn program will be available soon.
