Country Gardens

Country Gardens

Significant winter rainfall and distinct seasons allows flowers to flourish in Australia’s South West. Pretty, inland towns are at their best in winter and spring, when rolling hills are green, and ornamental gardens are full of floral fanfare.

Take a stroll along the streets of NannupBridgetown and Balingup for pretty floral displays, or visit during the Festival of Country Gardens in autumn or spring, when the region opens grand estates, parks and quaint cottage gardens to visitors seasonally.

The local visitor centres will be pleased to direct you to great gardens or parks open during your visit, however here are some of our favourites (be sure to check gardens are open before you visit).
