Preparations are picking up speed for opening our gardens in 2015. 

Dates for gardens opening for the Festival are:

Autumn: First weekend of May, i.e. 2, 3 May

We have 13 gardens all signed up opening for Autumn, Weekend: 2, 3 May from Donnybrook to Pemberton with gardens as well in Balingup, Bridgetown and Manjimup. 

Plus a morning walk through the Golden Valley Tree Park on the Saturday morning to see the deciduous trees in their Autumn colours. 

Look for a wheelbarrow at the front entrance of the open garden with flowers or colourful autumn leaves or berries.


Prelude: second weekend of October, i.e. 10, 11 October

Main Festival: first weekend of November with the two days in front,

i.e. Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 November

Summer favourites

Agapanthus and hydrangeas


From mid, late November the stars of summer in the garden show their cool side with their blue and pale lilac coloured flowers.

The Festival logo is a flower-filled or leaf and berry filled wheelbarrow. 

The Festival covers the inland South West of Western Australia and aims to have gardens open from Donnybrook, Kirup through Balingup and Nannup to Bridgetown, Manjimup and Pemberton. Contact us if you would like to know more.
