Beautiful gardens to open in November 2024
The fabulous Crookwell Garden Festival is on again in 2024. Although we have yet to confirm which gardens will feature this year, they will range from small-town gardens to larger country landscapes with sweeping vistas. Each of the cool-climate gardens will showcase the owners’ love of planting while reflecting the different designs they each have for their gorgeous landscapes.
And of course all our open gardens are beautiful!
Stay tuned and we’ll publish more about the 2024 open gardens as information becomes available.
Garden Lovers Market, Saturday 2 November
The perfect accompaniment to a stroll around the open gardens is to explore the Garden Lovers Market at Crookwell Showground where there will be a smorgasbord of plants, products and services, all with the garden and home theme in mind. The market will be open on the Saturday morning.
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. This area is renowned for its magnificent long vistas, rolling hills and its four very distinct seasons.
It is a cool climate region with deep, fertile soils situated at 700 to 1100 metres above sea level that, while sometimes challenging, makes for superb garden development when the right cool climate plants are combined.
The 2024 host gardens 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 welcome 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.
