This autumn enjoy picnics, glamping, rowing, and Australia’s largest maze – all set within one of NSW’s most extensive and picturesque gardens, just 2 hours from Sydney!
Mayfield Garden, Australia’s largest privately-owned cool climate garden, has announced its annual Autumn Festival will return from Saturday April 2nd through to ANZAC Day, Monday 25th April.
During the Autumn Festival, the full 65 hectares of the spectacular cool climate garden – including a 50-hectare private family estate – will be open for guests to immerse themselves in the beauty and tranquility of the Garden.
Festival visitors are invited to bring a picnic lunch, or book a table at the renowned Mayfield Café to indulge in the seasonal menu.
The extraordinary kaleidoscope of Autumnal colours that Mayfield Garden has on show makes the Autumn season the most impressive time of year to visit.
Visitors can explore Australia’s largest English Box Hedge Maze, the Mayfield Amphitheatre, Cascade and Temple, Family Chapel, Water Garden, Stumpery and enjoy rowing on the glassy Mayfield Lake.
“Visitors to our Autumn Festival traditionally come to see the amazing explosion of colour, but I think they will be wowed this year by the spectacular growth the garden has experienced over the last 12-months,” says Mayfield’s Chris Muldoon.
“Those who know the garden will be astounded not only at how much it has grown but also how quickly it is maturing, and, of course, the garden always looks amazing in Autumn.”
The Garden will be open during the Autumn Festival from 9.00am to 5.00pm, with no entry after 3.30pm.
