Through the Garden Gates
The Friends have held these very popular self-drive garden tours, visiting private gardens in the areas:
  • 2012 - the Bellarine
  • 2013 - the Surf Coast
  • 2014 - Geelong
  • 2015 - the Bellarine
  • 2016 - Golden Plains
  • 2017 - the Bellarine
  • 2018 - the Bellarine
  • 2019 - the Surf Coast

In 2019, the tour revisited the Surf Coast region and visited four stunning gardens in the Freshwater Creek, Moriac and Bellbrae areas – offering an incredible variety of design and location.

Afternoon Tea was included in the ticket price - and this was again a delicious event, held at Bellbrae.  At Bellbrae, there was a Plant Stall (plants from gardens of Growers and Friends).
