Discover the joy of   our cool climate gardens 

6-7 November 2021


The Crookwell Garden Festival Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Crookwell Garden Festival due to current COVID-19 concerns.


As the event organisers, we were very conscious of the challenges in planning and delivering our popular festival in the face of this major health issue. 

We are looking forward to planning and delivering the next Crookwell Garden Festival on 6-7 November 2021.

About the festival

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 also is renowned for its magnificent long vistas, rolling hills and its four very distinct seasons. 


It is a cool climate area sited 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 festival's selection committee will work carefully and diligently to craft a workable trail of beautiful cool climate gardens for our local community and visitors to enjoy.


The gardens opening in 2021 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. 

Additionally, the popular Saturday morning Crookwell Garden Festival Market will return with a larger offering of stallholders to satisfy the beginner gardener through to those looking for that special plant or garden piece.

We will publish more information about the event and the gardens as it becomes available.
