Mayfield is setting out to become the artistic and entertainment hub of the central west and while we have an exciting schedule of events and workshops of our own lined up, we are here to help you create a stunning event of your own at Mayfield, be it a Christmas party, corporate retreat or private event.

The Personal and Private Garden Tour takes your Mayfield experience to a whole new level…
Picked up from local accommodation in Bathurst & Oberon, on arrival a personal tour around the Hawkins’ Family Garden, plus areas that cannot be viewed during seasonal festivals! Enter through the family’s private entrance and view the private areas normally not open outside of festival events. View Australia’s 2nd largest Maze, Mayfield Chapel, the Rose Garden, croquet lawn, the sculptured garden, and amphitheatre. You will be served a private lunch including Mayfield’s signature ‘Communal Feast’ in The Glass House. Following lunch, walk through the Hawkins private Japanese Garden and within Mayfield House which isn’t even on the Mayfield map during seasonal seasons. Before you leave, you’ll stop into the Cafe & Nursery Produce Store so you can take away a piece of Mayfield home with you!
It will be a day you’ll never forget and a life-experience which should be on everyone’s bucket list.
April 10 – May 3, 2020
The full 65-hectare Private Garden will be open at this time, despite the fact that the annual Autumn Festival has been cancelled. Visitors to the garden will still get to explore the entire 65 hectares of Mayfield.
You can get lost in the traditional English inspired Maze, see the Croquet Lawn, the Hawkins’ Family Chapel, the Chook Hilton, the 80-metre Cascade & Temple and much more. Being a cool climate garden, we feature many varieties of deciduous trees which offer an array of Autumn colors.
Mayfield is a large outside space where you, your family and friends can escape and benefit from some tranquility and beauty, surrounded by nature – all things that are much needed during these unsettling times.
There is lots of room for many people to wander comfortably, and plenty of little nooks and corners in the garden for families and groups to share a BYO picnic.
A few small rules. Please pay with credit card. No reusable coffee cups. And take any food scraps and litter home with you.
Of course, while Mayfield is open now, circumstances may change at any time so suggest you regularly check in with our social media platforms.
