Country Gardens 2012

Gardens in the central South West of Western Australia will be open to visitors in 2012 as part of the Festival of Country Gardens

The dates for Spring 2012 are:

Prelude: Friday 12 to Sunday 14 October and

Main Festival: Thursday 1 to Sunday 4 November 2012.

Every garden is open each day of the Prelude and/or the Main Festival from 10 am to 5 pm.

Garden gates will be opened in picturesque country villages and the small towns for exploring what is behind the garden fence.

The locations are in the scenic, inland south west of Western Australia that includes Balingup, Bridgetown, Donnybrook, Manjimup and Nannup.

In addition to gardens opening there will be morning walks and evening sundowners with a garden theme over the Festival days, so that visitors and local people can enjoy a garden-inspired holiday.

Be prepared for a visual feast in August by Nannup’s 4 day “The Power of Flowers” theme for the annual Flower and Garden Festival.  Visit the website for more information http://www.nannupgardens.org.au/index.html

Held from the 16th – 19th August the festival is packed with displays, floral art, crafts and practical tips on home gardening.

The Nannup Flower and Garden Festival is a fabulous 4 days of colour, inspiration,    friendship and song!    Can’t visit during the Festival? No problems.  For a couple of weeks either side of the Festival,  Nannup is ablaze with beautiful flowers.

Hear from our guests

This was by far the best holiday resort down south I have ever been to in Western Australia. It was so peaceful and I caught 2 things- a stick and a tree! WOOHOO But we fed the donkeys some apples…they are so cute. We had the fire going the entire time. The cottages were so cosy and comfortable….The views from the verandah was amazing and we could always see the donkeys. And they followed my sisiter for her sandwich. We hope to be back here soon.
