Each year up to 10 private gardens are open to the public, ranging from small cottage gardens to stunning large acreage creations. The Gardens of Griffith reflect the joy and pleasure the community gains from creating stunning displays. The Mediterranean climate provides optimum conditions for the Griffith Festival of Gardens. The main street is lined with citrus sculptures based on the famous Menton sculptures of France.
After a hearty breakfast we explore some more of the spectacular gardens that are involved in the Griffith Festival of Gardens. We visit the Catania Fruit Salad Farm and Riverina Grove, the very best Australian grown and manufactured gourmet products, and delight in some tasting. After stopping for lunch we visit the Art Gallery to view the flower power exhibition. This afternoon we visit the Pioneer Park and Italian Museum then off to explore another garden before returning to our motel to freshen up before dinner.
Day 3 - Sunday 15th Garden Visits - Home
Time for breakfast before embarking on the last day of our journey. The Mediterranean climate combined with the abundance of water from the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Scheme provides optimum conditions for the spring awakening and the Griffith Festival of Gardens. Every year some Ten Gardens are open for inspection ranging from small cottage gardens to magnificent homestead gardens along with a host of special displays and attractions. We visit another garden this afternoon before making our way home after enjoying the magnificent Griffith Festival of Gardens.
