Stirling Autumn Garden Festival

image One of Stirling's oldest and most famous private gardens will be open to the public as part of the Stirling Autumn Garden Festival on Sunday 18 April 2010.
The festival, held under the exquisite old oak trees of Druid Avenue, will feature stalls by garden designers and nurseries and garden art. Food at local cafes and restaurants will be available. Guest speakers during the day include gardening expert Sophie Thomson and others.
As part of Australia's Open Garden Scheme throughout the day shuttle buses will transport people free of charge to the garden (entry to the garden is AUD6.00), while other gardens will feature in an historical coach tour (entry AUD15.00) offered by the Mount Lofty Living Garden History Centre.
Be sure to check out the more than 40 scarecrows - made by local schools and businesses - which will line Mount Barker Road during the week leading up to the festival.
