Head over to Centennial Park September 5-8
The highlight of the New South Wales horticultural calendar, Sydney’s inaugural Australian Garden Show kicks off later this year, with a packed schedule of green-fingered events and exhibits. Early bird tickets are now on sale through the website, so if you’re a keen gardener and planning to be in the Aussie city at that time, you should certainly pay a visit to Centennial Park.
Gardening Downunder is on a high of late after the Australian Garden won Best In Show at London’s prestigious Chelsea Flower Show. Indeed there’s a good chances that its designers, Fleming Nurseries, will be on hand to address visitors. Already confirmed is an extensive series of daily lectures on a whole gamut of topics from many internationally acclaimed naturalists.
Alongside the extensive selection of show gardens will be a clinic to answer all your personal queries and daily free photo workshops, while the kitchen garden will help visitors learn more about producing their own fresh produce in a sustainable fashion. All that should be enough to work up an appetite and allow you to adjourn to one of the restaurants or bars on site.
A specially tailored light show will illuminate the park at night and make it the perfect place to enjoy a meal or a drink.
