Welcome to Open Gardens Victoria

Launched in 2015, Open Gardens Victoria is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation that assists garden owners to open their private gardens to the public and also organise gardening and horticultural themed events. Our activities are funded by ticket sales, and each year a portion of our surplus is applied to grants under our Giving Program for horticultural projects in the fields of education, wellness, innovation, community and sustainability.

We are now an established part of the gardening scene. In this changing world, no matter how large or small the space available to us, OGV is committed to engaging and encouraging our traditional garden lovers and our younger demographic to embrace gardening, as a valuable form of creative expression and sustenance within our culture.

We also endeavour to keep our community connected to gardens with interesting new online initiatives for all via our website, Instagram and Facebook pages.


We email monthly newsletters with all the latest garden openings and events. To subscribe, or read past issues, click here. Once subscribed you will receive upcoming newsletters via your email. You can unsubscribe at any time.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Please contact us with suggestions or queries, or if you would like further information about OGV! We look forward to having you all as part of our community.
