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.
This is the first time that the Open Gardens are being held over two days with the Town Gardens open on Saturday 29 August and Country Gardens open on Sunday 30 August. There will be something to please seasoned and aspiring gardeners and those that simply appreciate gardens. You don’t need a green thumb to visit and enjoy the Maryborough Open Gardens!
Subject to government directives regarding COVID-19, the 2020 Maryborough Open Gardens will be held on the weekend of 29 and 30 August. As we are wanting to ensure that the safety and wellbeing of visitors, volunteers and garden owners is paramount, the 2020 Maryborough Open Gardens will be a COVID-Safe event held in accordance with the applicable Queensland Health guidelines. This may mean additional wait times when entering gardens, providing your details on our event registers and following any requests from volunteers or garden owners. We sincerely appreciate all visitors respecting and acknowledging our need to instigate protocols in response to COVID-19 as we want all visitors to be safe whilst enjoying visiting our beautiful gardens, and we thank you in advance.
