 Welcome

Garden DesignFest 2014 was the sixth and most successful running of this event since we started in 2004.  Our next event will be in 2016 where we will once again showcase around 25 spectacular gardens featuring the work of some of Victoria's most acclaimed garden designers.  As always, the designers and their staff will be on hand at their respective gardens to chat to the public and to discuss their design needs and obtain all the relevant information needed to create or improve their own gardens.

The Patron of this festival is John Patrick, the well known media identity.  Mr Patrick confirmed that 100% of the net proceeds go to the charities selected by Rotary as listed at the bottom of this page and on the Charities Tab.  As the proud organisers of this event the Rotary Club of Kew in conjunction with the Rotary Clubs of Brighton North and Central Melbourne Sunrise aims to firstly, raise much needed funds for its selected charities; and secondly, to encourage creative, bold, innovative, versatile, practical and responsible gardening in our Australian gardens.

We are deeply indebted to the generous owners of the gardens and their designers without whom we would not be able to stage this event.

Please enjoy your visit to this site and the information it contains on the designers, the gardens, the charities and our sponsors who participated in 2014.  In the meantime, we are now working on bringing you another memorable weekend in November 2016 and as soon as we have chosen the gardens for 2016 we will update this website accordingly.
