Gardivalia - Festival Of Gardens and Events - Gardens from 19th October to November 5th Cup Weekend and Events September, October to Nov 5th - 2019

Gardens, Events, Calendar, Map and Program for 2019 are now available, click on Open Gardens or Festival of Events to see them listed.

West Gippsland Festival of Gardens will be running again this year 2019 with a few changes of course. By popular request we are delighted to announce we are extending the festival into the first week of November to incorporate the Cup Week-end. This opens up more time for families and gives garden clubs many more opportunities to organise bus tours and all those that love being involved. 

This Festival opens beautiful gardens for you to enjoy, set in the natural beauty of West Gippsland. Not only are the gardens inspiring, but there are also events for you to enjoy, and most are free. There is no charge for children for entry into the gardens or the events, so the whole family can enjoy them. You can learn from some, be involved in others but most of all enjoy the experience. 

The Festival has flourished since the idea germinated in West Gippsland over ten years ago. We thank all who have supported us in previous years and hope you will enjoy the festival this year having a number of different gardens and events for you to see.

This year is a time for the Gardivalia Festival to once again bring pleasure to all. 

Happy gardening,

From the Team at Gardivalia
