Open Nature Gardens Weekend

Saturday, 14th October 2023 - Sunday, 15th October 2023


Some of the most inspiring nature and wildlife gardens will be open to the community on October 14th and 15th for the Open Nature Gardens Weekend.

Hosted by Nature Conservation Margaret River Region (NCMRR), it’s the third time the annual event returns after a huge success in the previous years.

With 70 per cent of land in the Margaret River region privately owned, nature spaces in backyards are becoming increasingly important. These spaces can support wildlife and biodiversity, help cool down our living spaces and by chooses local native species we can reduce our use of water resources. The event is designed to educate and inspire locals on the benefits of planting native species, and give nature a hand in their suburban gardens or on their bush blocks and rural properties.

Tickets are just $15 to attend all gardens on the program during the October 14-15 weekend, with all money raised going back into nature conservation activities.

“People can tour the gardens, hear about the ways each gardener has incorporated a range of native plants into their garden design as well as a diversity of features which cater to the needs of a variety of wildlife using the space for habitat and humans”

There will be resources available, some plant lists.

The gardens include landscaped native gardens, dry gardens (not reticulated), semi rural properties to suburban and coastal gardens – something for everyone!

The full program will be released closer to the weekend.
