Event Packages

Private Tour

July 1 — June 30   9:00 am — 4:00 pm

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.

Sculpture Garden by Talisman Gallery

Each one is available for purchase, and make a great centrepiece for your garden. The small glass ornaments, also by Ron Fitzpatrick and the Talisman Gallery creative team, make a great gift this holiday season.
