We had a great Festival over Spring 2015 with many delighted and delightful visitors.

The program - the essential guide to the Festival in Spring 2015 - is available here as a pdf.

Garden is Rokewood in Bridgetown

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, Greenbushes, Boyup Brook and Nannup to Bridgetown, Manjimup and Pemberton. Contact us if you would like to know more.
