About us

Maryborough Open Gardens is an annual event when private gardens in Maryborough (Queensland) and surrounds are opened to the public to enjoy, gain inspiration, learn about what grows in the region and simply share the love of gardening.   Visitors are treated to a wide range of garden sizes and styles from the formal to quirky and artistic and small to large acreage.  Entry to gardens is free with some gardens having fund raising events including plant sales and refreshments. You don’t need a green thumb to visit and enjoy the Maryborough Open Gardens…
