Love waking up to go on an adventure. My motto is to collect memories not possessions.

Green with envy
Prepare for some serious garden envy as the very best gardens in the Hills District open their doors to the public on Friday 16, Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 October 2015. There will be nine, amazing open gardens spread across Galston, Arcadia and Dural.

This is a truly wonderful day out and a great chance to meander around some of the best gardens in Sydney, and arguably Australia. Each garden is uniquely different and visitors will be fascinated to see how each owner has structured their garden. Among the many things you will see include water features, garden sculptures, vegetables gardens, ornamental plants, flowering shrubs and and speciman trees. Everyone who visits is sure to come away with many ideas for their own garden.

You will be able to purchase morning or afternoon tea (or both!) at the much acclaimed Elegans (garden 5, 21 Fishburn Road, Galston). Elegans will also have some market stalls.

At Garden 8, Chanticleer, you will be able to have a browse through Grada's Gallery. This gallery is located in a barn and exhibits art by local Australian artists.

Many of the gardens also welcome visitors to stay and enjoy a picnic lunch on their grounds - so pack a rug and some goodies! Or there are also many wonderful cafes and restaurants in the area. The Galston Club is offering a $12.00 lunch deal (choice of ten different meals with a glass of wine, soft drink or beer plus unlimited coffee or tea).

A full listing of the open gardens, including a map, can be found on the Galston Garden Club website.

Additionally, there will be a Royal Horticultural Society Show in the Galston Community Centre, 37 Arcadia Road, Galston. It will be open from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm on the Saturday and Sunday. A huge range of floral art, potted plants, fruit, vegetables and many classes of cut flowers will be on display. Entries are welcome from members of the public.

Tickets are available on the open days at the Galston Club, 21 Arcadia Road, or at any of the gardens. An all inclusive ticket for $20.00 per person gives entrance to all the gardens (valid for three days), or entrance to a single garden is $5.00 per person. Children (under 18 years) are free.

Gardens are open between 9.30am and 4.30pm each day. No dogs allowed.

Please note that all workers for the Open Gardens are unpaid volunteers and all profits are distributed to charities.

A big thank you to each of the owners of these wonderful properties for opening up their gardens to share with us.

Don't forget the Golden Wheel Buddhist Retreat, Galston will also open their gardens to the public on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 September 2015.
