Don’t miss your chance to see the vibrant changing colours and the opening of the New Moss Creek Garden, which is part of the additional 10 hectares of the Hawkins’ Family Garden open for Autumn Festival 2019.

Mayfield Garden suggests a minimum 4 hours to see the entire of 75 hectares including the Mayfield Maze.

The Moss Creek Garden features the rediscovered, Wollemi pine, Nicknamed the 'dinosaur tree' or 'living fossil.’ This tree is one of the most significant botanical discoveries of recent years, and it was discovered just down the road from Mayfield Garden in the Wollemi National Park. Native Australian plants complement the rock formations and the Wollemi pine.

We have something for everyone here at Mayfield. For our Mini Mayfielders, there will be activities to keep the kids busy during the Autumn school holidays, like the Mayfield Scavenger Hunt and the Easter Workshops (bookings required), Rowboats on Mayfield Lake, croquet, bocce, and giant chess.

Mayfield Scavenger Hunt - Download and print the free activity sheet and then find the answers to these questions throughout the garden. Solve puzzles and take pictures to celebrate your success and share on social media.

Easter Workshops - Thursday 18 April 2019 or Friday 19 April 2019 – The day begins with an Easter Egg Hunt in the private Hawkins’ Family Garden Rooms. Then sit down and create a special Easter artwork at Fiona Howle’s Easter Garden Workshop. Finish it off with a tasty Mini Mayfielder Meal.

After lunch, stay at Mayfield and explore the Mayfield Maze, enjoy complimentary access to rowboats on Mayfield Lake, and play interactive garden games. Your ticket includes the full day of activities, entrance to 75 hectares of garden, and lunch.
