Castlemaine & District Festival of Gardens – Gardens Embracing Change

Exhibition and Shows

29 Oct 2022 to 6 Nov 2022 Biennial Event

Explore a diverse selection of inspirational gardens in Castlemaine and surrounds over nine days this Spring at Castlemaine and District Festival of Gardens.

The theme of the festival, Gardens Embracing Change, has never been more poignant. It recognises the challenges for all gardeners in the current climate, and into the future, with climate change being a most important factor in the planning.

Water conservation, mulching, raised beds, composting, plant selection and so on all play a part in helping our gardens survive. The festival hopes that this theme will demonstrate to visitors how we are preparing for the future, and keeping gardens growing.

Ranging from grand country gardens, historical gardens to town gardens, veggie gardens, sculpture gardens, small cottage plots and gardens that will inspire and delight.

In an area renowned for its accommodation, eateries, orchards, wineries and landscape, the Festival of Gardens is an idyllic two to three day getaway.

For over 25 years the gardeners of Castlemaine and District have opened their front gates and welcomed visitors in to enjoy the fruits of their labours. They hope to be able to welcome you into one or all.
