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.

Autumn Opening

April 10 — May 3   9:00 am — 4:30 pm

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.

Mayfield Maze
Everyone wants to know when the Mayfield Maze is open along with all 65 hectares of the Hawkins’ Family Garden. The answer is 64 days a year, during the four seasonal festivals. The Mayfield Maze is one of the largest English Box Hedge Maze in Australia and is 1.4 km long.
