CROOKWELL OPEN GARDENS
6-7 November 2021
DISCOVER THE JOY OF OUR COOL CLIMATE GARDENS
Crookwell Garden Festival invites you to experience the joy of our 2021 gardens.
We are in full planning mode now for the festival in November and looking forward to welcoming our visitors in person this year. Our gardens weren't able to open last November (although we did have a marvellous virtual festival) but all are likely to open in 2021, so you won't miss out.
Crookwell is in the Upper Lachlan region that borders the Southern Highlands at the northern end of the Southern Tablelands. Its close proximity to Canberra (1.5 hours) and Sydney (3 hours) has added a new dimension to the travels of garden lovers from these major cities.In addition to its close proximity to Sydney and Canberra, this area is also renowned for its magnificent long vistas, rolling hills and its four very distinct seasons.
It is a cool climate area with deep, fertile soils situated at 700 to 1100 metres above sea level that, whilst challenging, makes for superb garden development when the right cool climate plants are combined.
The host gardens this year will be a wonderful representation of what can be achieved in any garden, large or small, with vision, creative expression and a desire to connect with nature.
Crookwell town and the villages of the Upper Lachlan Shire are open for business and welcoming visitors . From Collector to Tuena and Bigga to Taralga, come and meet our friendly locals and enjoy our many delights, including great food, stunning landscapes and comfy accommodation.
