Gardens of the Goldfields
3-11 November 2018

Comprehensive souvenir programs detailing full property addresses and open days / times are available from the Castlemaine, Maldon and Bendigo Visitor Information centres plus a range of retail outlets and open gardens at a cost of $3.00 per program.

Welcome to the website of the 15th Biennial Castlemaine & District Festival of Gardens.

​For just over 25 years the gardeners of Castlemaine & District have opened their front gates and welcomed visitors in to enjoy the fruits of their labours.

​Every two years, in Melbourne Cup Week, around 25 selected gardens are offered for your enjoyment. As always there is a variety of gardens, from grand and historical gardens to small cottage plots and gardens which will intrigue and inspire.

In 2018 there will be 22 Gardens of the Goldfields open. We hope to be able to welcome you in to one or all.

Take a look at what’s in store here and start planning your visit here.
