2020 Open Gardens

THANK YOU

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

… A Garden …

A small plot of earth was chosen to claim, 
To create our garden was the ultimate aim.
Today we walk amongst its beauty and charm,
Our patch of heaven has grown to be shared. 
It's still in the working as most gardens are,
Come along and meet us - there is a garden in us all. 

Deborah and Trevor Lindenberg.
