Previous Post in this series: Index of Open Gardens of Australia

In 1998, Holly Kerr Forsyth (Horticulturalist, long-time garden columnist in the Australia newspaper) published a list of 400 special gardens to visit in Australia.
  • These are not necessarily heritage gardens, but I will cross-reference these to the page on Heritage Gardens In Australia (arranged by State in Wikipedia: Heritage Gardens in Australia).
  • Not all of these are these necessarily Open Gardens, but I will check with each owner if their gardens can be listed and visited.

This book is out of print, but available second hand.

  • To avoid copyright problems, I am abbreviating Holly Forsyth's listing for each garden.
  • However, for convenience, I am listing these gardens in the order of Holly Forsyth's book above.
