The perfect getaway for garden lovers. Spend the weekend in the beautiful Mid North, indulge your senses with glorious gardens, fabulous food and super scenery all within an hour's drive of Burra.
Springtime is perfect to immerse yourself in the Goyder Gardens open weekend. Our climate is
extreme with freezing winters and long dry summers, creating a challenge in the search for hardy plants. All gardens are owner built, designed, and maintained, many featuring local stone for walls and borders.
We have a large and enthusiastic gardening community, many of whom love sharing their gardens with visitors from all over the state. Although only a small community we have a strong arts base offering artists another outlet for their work. Being away from supermarkets, mid north residents have become very adept at recycling and repurposing, adding a very individual layer to their garden design. With a collection of interesting and diverse gardens, from country cottage to farm and more formal layouts, we combine those with complimentary stallholders and presenters. With some
gardens offering morning teas, there will also be food and music.
Our aim is to promote gardening for everyone, no matter how small your space or difficult your
conditions. As part of our goal, we wish to promote South Australian expertise, talent and creative ability, with a focus on those starting out and community groups. We will be showcasing plants, pottery, textile art, mosaics, weaving and recycled garden sculpture.
