MARYBOROUGH Open Gardens has grown to be a two-day stand-alone event in August this year.
The event showcases private gardens in and around Maryborough.
“Visitors can enjoy, be inspired, learn about what grows in the region and share the love of gardening,” spokesperson Louise Knol said.
“They will be treated to a wide range of garden sizes and styles from the formal to quirky; artistic, small to large acreage.”
“The gardens are so varied there will be something to please all garden enthusiasts,” Ms Knol said.
The variety of gardens is inspiring, Fraser Coast Mayor George Seymour said.
“Gardening, and getting outdoors has so many benefits.
“Council has a number of gardens ranging from the formal Elizabeth Rose Garden in Kent Street to the relaxed Pioneer Park.
“The simple pleasure of being immersed in nature is very soothing and invigorating.
“We thank the gardeners who maintain the region’s gardens and who have thrown open their gates to give us a peek inside.”
At this stage the event is being planned for August 29 and 30, subject to government directives regarding COVID-19.
The weekend will be split into two sections with town gardens open on Saturday, August 29 and country gardens open on Sunday, August 30.
The Maryborough Open Gardens are a collaborative partnership between Fraser Coast Regional Council and community.
