Discover the joy of   our cool climate gardens 

Save the date: 7-8 November 2020

We invite you to share our passion for gardening in the cool climate southern tablelands of New South Wales. The Crookwell region is truly a hidden gem: located at 1000 metres above sea level and blessed with deep, rich soil, we can grow an enormous variety of flowering and fruiting plants that positively love our cold winters and warm to hot summers.


Local garden enthusiasts will showcase the beauty and variety of the cool climate gardens of Crookwell and surrounds at the Crookwell Garden Festival on 7 and 8 November 2020. There will be a wide variety of town and country gardens open for viewing, as well as the popular Garden Lovers Market on Saturday 7 November.

You're also welcome to take a walk through Crookwell Community Garden.

The open gardens of 2020

This year we will have gardens that have never been open to the public, along with classic favourites that are always appealing.


We are in the process of finalising the gardens that will open on 7-8 November 2020, and will publish information on the gardens as it becomes available.

A proportion of funds raised through the festival supports a local charity, with funds also going to the running of the festival and to garden owners in recognition of the cost of preparing gardens.
