After all the extreme weather and unprecedented winds and destructive bushfires, you will be pleased to hear that the indomitable gardeners of Comboyne will host their annual Garden Walk on Sunday October 15, from 9am to 4pm.
There are 16 open gardens for a single admission price of $10 per adult, with children free.
Children must be supervised by a responsible adult, as many gardens contain water features and other hazards.
Tickets are available on the day from the Comboyne Community Centre, with its Spring Hanging Baskets in the middle of town.
This is a great opportunity to enjoy the hospitality and friendly welcome of Comboyne folk as they showcase their delightful gardens.
It will be the last chance for you to explore the multi-award-winning “Girraween Gardens”, winner of the Sun Herald Garden Competition, as Phyllis Fisher is retiring her garden after this year’s event.
With six gardens in Comboyne township and ten out of town gardens, you might have trouble fitting them all into the day, so your program, giving a brief description of each garden, will be useful in planning your agenda.
From delightful and quirky suburban gardens to expansive and inspiring farm gardens, you will see low maintenance, rainforest inspired and formal layouts, with natives and exotics and unique garden ornaments.
Devonshire teas will be available at one out of town garden, while the Community Centre will have packs of freshly-made sandwiches and bottled water to carry you through.
