Explore Mayfield

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.


September 26 — November 30   4:00 pm — 10:00 am

See 65 hectares including the Mayfield Maze during the 22-day Spring Festival. The Hawkins Family Garden is open for the public, so this is your opportunity to explore all of Mayfield. Not only is the English inspired Mayfield Maze open, but you can see the Croquet Court, the Hawkins’ Family Chapel, the Chook Hilton, the 80-metre Cascade & Temple and much more. Take one of our rowboats out on Mayfield Lake (at no additional cost) or play one of our interactive games with your family and friends – these are scattered throughout the garden. IT’s even easier to see it all with our courtesy hop-on-hop-off bus which will be making several stops around the garden.
