Leura Gardens Festival 2012
The Festival will be held from Saturday 29th September to Sunday 7th October.
Gardens open at 9:30am to 4:30pm daily.
Up to twelve gardens will open to the public including the large the National Trust property 'Everglades'. Apart from Everglades, the gardens featured in the Festival are all privately owned properties and visitors have an exclusive opportunity to not only see a wide cross section of the very best gardens the region has to offer but also to interact with some of the garden owners, many of whom are present in their gardens during the days of the Festival. Garden enthusiasts who are planning new gardens or re-modeling existing one's always find the Festival is a fund of inspiring ideas.
Entry prices will be $20pp for a multiple entry ticket to all gardens, and $5pp for a single garden entry ticket. (Children with parents are admitted with no charge)
Visa and MasterCard are accepted at Festival HQ, Fitzroy Street Leura.
Multiple entry tickets may be used on any day or combination of days during the Festival, and can be purchased at the entry to any garden.
For the first time in its 48 year history an exciting events programme will be included in this year's Festival.
If you can't make the Festival dates why not think about making up your own group. Make up a party of ten people or more and we will arrange a special garden tour for your group. Four gardens, including the spectacular private estate "The Braes", will be included in the tour. The tour dates are one week before and one week after the Festival dates and are subject to availability at the time of booking. The cost is $20 pp, with no charge for the Tour Leader and Coach Captain. For an added $5 pp, the National Trust property "Everglades" can be included in the tour. Refreshments are available at "Everglades" or you can picnic in the grounds.
