Open Gardens Victoria

Victorian Open Gardens Scheme Inc is a new not-for-profit organization formed to continue the long tradition of opening private gardens throughout Victoria.

Victoria has a proud horticultural history - Australia's first open garden program was launched here in 1987 and over the years the much-loved scheme has proven irresistible to garden lovers. Open Gardens Victoria will continue to provide the opportunity to visit wonderful gardens in this State, building on the legacy handed down by Open Gardens Australia following its closure at the end of June 2015, after 27 years and almost 20,000 open gardens.

Each season OGV will offer a program of inspirational gardens encompassing the entire range from designer to owner-grown and maintained, huge to tiny, rural to metropolitan and everything in between! The program will feature a mix of gardens that have delighted visitors in the past along with a selection of wonderful new ones.  As well as general private garden openings, each year the program will include themed openings, select garden tours, talks and special events. Those visiting the 2016 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show may also like to join OGV on a tour to wonderful gardens in the Macedon region.
