The Event

A Wigram Lions Club project called the Charity Garden Tour is proudly supporting Child Cancer Foundation and Westpac Rescue Helicopter

We have tried to give you a range of gardens from the quite small to those of an acre or more. For your convenience, we have labelled each garden small, medium, or large. Your ticket entitles you to visit gardens on both Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November between 10am and 4pm. We suggest before you set out you decide which gardens you would like to see that day. Please ensure that you bring a map, your information brochure and ticket with you.

At 2 gardens you can name a plant marked ‘Name Me’ and go in a draw to win a garden voucher and product prize of $100 value.
