A group is a minimum of ten paying visitors.
There is no necessity to book in advance for visits during Festival dates and times, however, we do prefer to know when to expect you.
We run a Ticket and Sales office on the kerbside in Fitzroy St., Leura. (See map in our brochure, or copy a map from this website on the Map Page
. See Group Checkpoint on map.)
We will assist you, give your group full colour Festival brochures and issue you with a Group Ticket / Tax Invoice / Receipt. This document will give you entry to all gardens you have paid for, and your driver will, of course, receive a brochure with a map and any directions as needed. Your Ticket / Receipt will be valid for all days of the Festival so that you may stay overnight and fit your garden visits into your programme as it suits your group.
Visits outside Festival dates or times.
Please inquire for further details as not all show gardens are included in the schedule.
During the Festival, tickets may be purchased at our Fitzroy Street HQ, using Visa or Mastercard. EFTPOS, however is not available. We would welcome a cheque for your group visit, and you may write your cheque on arrival, eliminating all possibility of payment for any no-show passengers. We do not accept vouchers without prior arrangement. Visiting, say, three gardens of your choice, on the days to suit you, is all done with the use of the Group Ticket / Invoice / Receipt. Gardens are all accessible to a drop off from your coach and turning spaces are there where you need them. Ask on arrival at Ticket Sales in Fitzroy St.
Need one of our brochures?
These are normally available in July. Please leave us your address or email details, and we shall send you one.

Private gardens are not designed for wheelchair access, although, there are some gardens where a part inspection is possible with interesting views of the garden and scenery. We will assist in this regard; the person in the wheelchair enjoys free entry, and only the "pusher" pays. Please make arrangements prior to visit.
