Visitor Information

Visitor Information

The garden entry fee for the 2015 - 16 season varies from $8 (general opening) to $15 per adult, depending on the nature of the garden and the activities available.  Children under 18 are admitted free of charge.

Friends of Open Gardens Victoria have been sent one two-for-one ticket for a general opening.  This can be handed in at the gate and allows a Friend to bring a guest at no cost on the payment of their own entry fee.

Open Gardens Victoria is a not-for-profit organisation and receives half the entry fee to cover administrative costs.  Garden owners keep half the entry fee but may indicate if they are donating all or part of the fee to a charity.

To retain the goodwill of owners who open their garden, OGV asks visitors to observe the following courtesies:

 

Open dates

Gardens are only open on the days on the stipulated dates.

Owner privacy

As you will be visiting a private property, please do not enter the house unless invited to do so.

Etiquette

Do not remove any part of a plant.  Keep to paths to avoid trampling on plants.  Take away anything you bring with you and do not litter.

Children

You are responsible for supervising children and ask that their behaviour does not distract from the quality of the experience for other visitors.

Dogs

Dogs (except Guide / mobility dogs) are not allowed in gardens unless the icon indicates that dogs on leads are permitted.  If dogs are permitted, they must on on a leash and under the control of the owner at all times.

Parking

Please obey parking directions and ensure others can enter and leave the parking area without inconvenience.
