For 2017, hidden will be opening gardens in spring. We thought that after several years of gardens being open in autumn it was time for a change.
We are planning another selection of fabulous designed outdoor spaces, reflecting the diversity and talent of Australia’s leading landscape designers.
Our website will be updated during the year as details are finalised, with tickets expected to go on sale mid-year. We will keep you up to date via our newsletter and through our Facebook and Instagram pages.
Hidden Design Festival 2016
Hidden is over for another year. We thank everyone involved in this year's event - designers, garden owners, volunteers and our visitors. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
Mountain Gardens 30 April 2016
Hidden Design Festival’s Mountain event is rapidly approaching. Unfortunately, one of our gardens had a number of large trees fall into their garden and needed to withdraw from the event. We really feel for the owners and Frayne, the garden’s designer, who have witnessed much of the garden destroyed under the fallen timbers of two towering mountain trees.
We have arranged two replacement gardens. The first is in Mount Wilson. It is a classic park style garden with large open spaces and expanses of lawn. There are drifts and swales, gentle slopes, water views, naturalising plants, clusters and copses and long sweeping hedges. The second garden, in Kurrajong Heights, has been created over the last 25 years and reflects the owner’s love affair with romance, fragrance and abundance. It includes rose gardens, a veggie garden, a woodland area plus a quiet, contemplative courtyard.
Tickets are now on sale for NSW
