Inspired by Australia's natural, developing and fun environments.
Get some inspiration.
All the best from the Country
For many years now, South Australian country gardeners have opened their gardens for the public to view, enjoy, appreciate and become inspired at the possibility of what is achievable within gardens nowadays. Spring 2016 has arrived, and with it comes another season of open gardens in South Australia, with a number of new gardens opening to the public for the first time.
The Open Gardens South Australia Spring Program includes 21 gardens in metropolitan Adelaide (click here) and another 27 gardens in various towns across South Australia from Port Lincoln to Mount Gambier, and many small towns and farms in between.
Each garden is open from 10am to 430pm on Saturdays and Sundays (few exceptions noted above), and has an entrance fee of $8 for adults, $6 for concession holders and free for kids. Some towns have arranged for several gardens to open on the same day within the town, thus making for a great day out for locals or perhaps a ideal weekend escape for visitors.

In addition to the wonderful gardens on display at each property, there are usually Devonshire teas, scones, cake stalls and plant stalls with some gardens also hosting small markets and live entertainment from local musicians. All surplus funds raised from the day are directed towards local charities with over $48,000 being generously donated last season.
