Our “in house” fully qualified Horticulturist, who completed his apprenticeship with the Royal Botanic Gardens, loves nothing better than to gather a group of likeminded people together, jump behind the wheel of a coach, go for a garden ramble and explore for a week!!
Cam also loves to create Garden Tour Packages to explore and share his passion with fellow garden enthusiasts and garden clubs throughout the year. Choosing the most interesting and beautiful regions and gardens for their seasonal splendour and incorporating them with local places of interest to create an experience to indulge the senses. These tours can vary from a day outing to an extended trip of a week or so, depending on the destination.
Garden Clubs from all over Eastern Australia choose to travel with us for their garden tours, visiting properties to enjoy the enormous variety of flora on offer. Many Garden Clubs create their own itinerary suitable for their members tastes – orchids, camellias, cherries, roses, irises, tulips – so many choices- and we can offer assistance to their organisers if they prefer, with ideas for side trips and timing to prepare a suitable travel itinerary making the most of their time on tour with us and maximising garden exploration and enjoying their trip. Allowing time to “stop and smell the roses” !
The Central West of NSW has some gems worth visiting such as Mayfield near Oberon and the Japanese Gardens in Cowra, NSW Southern Highlands has the Bowral tulip festival along with numerous Cool climate open gardens & plant fairs, the Central Coast of NSW has similar plant fairs and open gardens showcasing what can be achieved in the mild coastal climate. The Blue Mountains is rich in magnificent strolling gardens in the Upper Mountain townships of Leura, Wentworth Falls, Mt. Wilson and Blackheath with their Rhododendron Festival. Mt. Tomah of course is the Cool Climate home of the Royal Botanic Gardens and is open all year round so the visitor can soak up the ever changing vista of plants with the spectacular backdrop of the Blue Mountains. Head further north and the warmer climate shows off the Jacaranda’s in Grafton and the more lush & tropical styled gardens. Head south over the border and the High Country in Victoria has the brilliance of Spring & Autumn in Bright, well worth a visit!
