The Garden Getabout is held on the second weekend in November each year. Run over two
days, the weekend offers visitors the chance to view some beautiful open gardens in
Corryong and the wider Upper Murray region.
Gardens are not professionally designed, rather tended to and cared for by people who love their gardens and take pride in what they have created in their front and back yards. Some gardens come small, others medium or large, however all gardens have something different on offer for visitors to see, whether it be a rare plant, a design feature, a problem solved, or simply a surprise.
Garden owners are on hand during the day to answer any questions visitors have or just have a chat about their passion for gardening.
A weekend pass can be purchased from the Corryong Neighbourhood Centre and will allow you access to all of the gardens on display
