This is your chance to explore the gardens in the grounds of historic Tanilba House as well as Heavens Gardens, Tilligerry Habitat, Country Garden, Fern and Orchid Garden, Edible Garden and Rural Garden.

Tickets are an affordable $5 each or $10 for the whole family, however ticket sales are only available on the day.

Purchase your tickets and start your journey at either Tilligerry Habitat or Heavens Gardens on Lemon Tree Passage Road, where you will get a map of all the gardens participating.

The funds raised from the event will go to the Tilligerry Community Association.

Sue Royal told News Of The Area, “It is important for people to know that tickets are not available for pre-purchase.”

Visitors to Tilligerry Habitat may be lucky enough to spot one of the region’s local resident koalas.

Children will love the huge lawns, flock of guinea fowl, ponds and boardwalks at Heavens Garden, the district’s newest outdoor venue which will soon be hosting weddings and other events in their lush grounds.

Andrew and Barbara Simmonds of Heavens Gardens are excited to be opening their five acre property to the public and sharing their grounds as they embark on their new venture as a venue.

The Tilligerry Community Association provides entertainment and activities on the Tilligerry Peninsula for the community.
