Thank you to all the garden owners who made the 2020 Maryborough Open Gardens a success. There was a lot of work going the extra mile with the COVID restrictions in place. Also a huge thank you to Fraser Coast Regional Council for all the work ensuring that the COVID plans were in place and the general support for this event. Lastly, thank you to those that visited our gardens over the weekend. Thank you for your patience and good will. We have had a few negative comments and we take those on board. However, we did the very best that we could in very difficult circumstances to continue to deliver an event that many were able to enjoy.
We sincerely thank visitors for their understanding, garden owners for their commitment and hard work to deliver the 2020 Maryborough Open Gardens, and Fraser Coast Regional Council for their work behind the scenes to ensure that we are compliant with the new COVID framework.
We hope that you enjoyed the 2020 Maryborough Open Gardens, take care and stay safe and well over the Christmas and New Year Period and we look forward to welcoming returning and new garden owners and visitors to the 2021 Maryborough Open Gardens
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.
The 2020 event was the first time that the Open Gardens were held over two days with the Town Gardens open on Saturday 29 August and Country Gardens open on Sunday 30 August. With over 5,700 visits to the gardens there was 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!
