Bundanoon Garden RambleAn annual showcase of gardens in Bundanoon and Surrounds
The Bundanoon Garden Ramble
Held in late October each year, the Bundanoon Garden Ramble is a showcase of gardens in Bundanoon and surrounds.
Every year gardens are chosen that offer diversity in design, size and plantings showcasing the love and interpretation given them by the owners. The owners are always keen to share their love of gardening and the Southern Highlands. The dedicated garden owners spend months (actually years) prior to the weekend preparing their beautiful gardens in anticipation of the many visitors.
Visits to the beautiful gardens aren’t all that is on offer in Bundanoon in Ramble weekend. There is the Garden Market in the Bundanoon Hall where plants, gifts and art can be purchased. The working display of old farm equipment in the main street is always popular and the Bundanoon History Group mounts an informative exhibition in the Old Goods Shed beside the railway line.
Garden Ramble also hosts a Lions Club scarecrow competition, with traditional and imaginative scarecrows popping up around the village.
There are free shuttle buses to visit the gardens. Those who would prefer it can use bicycles or their own transport to avoid delays. Each ticket is a brochure, which outlines each garden’s detail, distances and any difficulties in or around each of the gardens. The brochure also contains a map of the area, positioning all the gardens.
The Garden Ramble is organised by a dedicated sub-committee and is one of the main fund-raisers of the Bundanoon Community Association. On the day, the Ramble relies on many volunteers to assist with ticket sales, enquiries, being at information points, bus drivers and more. If you would like to be involved with the Garden Ramble subcommittee, please contact the convenor.
