This autumn, enjoy picnics, glamping, rowing, and Australia’s largest maze – all set within one of NSW’s most extensive and picturesque gardens located at Oberon, around 2 hours from Sydney (near Bathurst, NSW).

Mayfield Garden, Australia’s most extensive privately-owned cool-climate garden, has announced its annual Autumn Festival will return from Saturday, April 2, to ANZAC Day, Monday, April 25.

The entire 65 hectares of the spectacular garden during the Autumn Festival, including the 50-hectare private family estate, will be open for guests to immerse themselves in. Featuring a wide variety of deciduous trees, an array of layering of warm Autumn colours is the spectacle that attracts so many to the festival.

Visitors are invited to bring a picnic lunch or book a table at the renowned Mayfield Café to sample the provincial style seasonal menu, primarily derived from the onsite kitchen garden.

The extraordinary kaleidoscope of Autumnal colours that Mayfield Garden displays makes the Autumn season the most memorable time of year to visit.

Visitors can explore Australia’s most prominent English Box Hedge Maze, the Mayfield Amphitheatre, 80 metre Cascade and Temple, Family Chapel, Water Garden, Stumpery and even try their hand at rowing on the glassy-calm Mayfield Lake.

Mayfield Garden Autumn Festival is set for 2022

‘Visitors to our Autumn Festival traditionally come to see the amazing explosion of colour, but I think they will be wowed this year by the spectacular growth the garden has experienced over the last 12-months,’ says Mayfield’s Chris Muldoon.

‘Those who know the garden will be astounded at how much it has grown and how quickly it is maturing, and, of course, the garden always looks amazing in Autumn.’

Mayfield is a covid-safe outside space where you, your family and friends can escape and benefit from some tranquillity and beauty, surrounded by nature – all things that are much needed during these unsettling times.
The Garden will be open during the Autumn Festival from 9am to 5pm, with no entry after 3.30pm.
