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. 

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!
