Euroa Open Gardens on this November
HOT on the heels of Mansfield’s two Open Garden weekends, the Euroa district is throwing open the garden gate and inviting the whole Mansfield community to get along to their production of the same.
Garden Designfest, Victoria’s largest and most prestigious open garden event, is hosting four world class gardens in the Euroa region on November 19 and 20.
Garden Designfest offers the opportunity for the public to visit private gardens which have been designed by some of Australia’s leading garden designers.
The event – which encompasses 45 gardens across the state – includes four from Euroa, being:
267 Longwood Gobur Road, Creightons Creek, designed by Paul Bangay;
“Killeen”, 224 Longwood-Mansfield Road, Creightons Creek, designed by Rick Eckersley;
“The Falls”, 142 Longwood Gobur Road, Longwood, designed by Robert Boyle; and
“Lakithi”, 948 Top Road, Terip Terip, designed by Gail van Rooyen.
Paul Bangay, Rick Eckersley and Robert Boyle are nationally and internationally famous garden designers and one look at Gail van Rooyen’s garden “Lakithi” shows she is clearly in the same class.
The gardens are open from 10am to 5pm on each day of the November weekend.
Entry to each garden is $12 or an all gardens ticket may be purchased for $40.
Tickets are available on the day, or on line from www.gardendesignfest. com.au.
Garden Designfest is a Rotary project, and all proceeds go to charity – this year, a share of funds will be donated to the Euroa Health Aged Care Facility.
Food and refreshments will be available at different gardens throughout the day, as well as a plant sale.
