Creswick Garden Lovers Weekend

Now in its fourth year, The Creswick Garden Lovers Weekend brings together a dedicated group of amateur gardeners, local artisans and creative green thumbs who open their gardens to the public. This spring garden event showcases private and well known gardens and celebrates the skill and diversity of passionate gardeners in and around Creswick.  Garden lovers are encouraged to indulge their passion by visiting nine diverse private precincts including rural, backyard, courtyard and evolving gardens and chat with their creators. Also on show are some of the outstanding and iconic commercial gardens and nurseries in the region, including Bells Water Gardens, Brenlissa Nursery, Lambley Gardens & Nursery, Maze House, Newlyn Antiques & Cottage Garden Nursery and Overwrought Garden Art.  Adding to this feast of flora will be the Creswick Garden Club’s ubiquitous Flower Show at the Town Hall, a Spring Garden Party with gourmet BBQ lunch at John Curtin Aged Care, the Mistydowns Nursery plant sale and more. The Garden Lovers Weekend is an initiative of Business & Tourism Creswick with the assistance of the Hepburn Shire Council and the Hepburn Shire Council and the Creswick Neighbourhood Centre.  Entry is only $5 per garden and free for children.  Online bookings are available at or on the day from the Creswick Neighbourhood Centre, Victoria Street, which is also the collection point for maps.
