Autumn Festival: 14-29 April 2018; 9am-4pm
During the 16 day Autumn Festival the Hawkins Family opens its Private Garden to visitors so this is your opportunity to explore the entire 160 acres of Mayfield. It’s evident that the most talked about part of the garden is the traditional English MAZE! Also, a great spot if you want to lose the kids, or husband for an hour or so. It has been proven that it can be quite challenging. After you escape from the Maze, a short walk to the chook houses or “Chook Hilton” - will remind you of how these animals probably live a more luxurious life than we humans do.
From here, see how they feed the hungry, with the Walled Kitchen Garden. A lot of the produce served in the Café is grown on site. In this area, it is the perfect hideaway, so that the veggies & fruit don’t get frosted leading into Winter. Wandering around, why not a spot of Croquet, a whole court to gaze at or continue down near the Obelisk & Pond, try your luck! If you're still tired, Tired yet? Didn’t think so – Well, why not walk from the bottom of the 80 metre Cascade to reach the Temple at the top? The view is certainly worth it.
Also in Autumn, the row boats are available on Mayfield Lake (at no additional cost) and interactive games are scattered throughout the garden for your family and friends to enjoy. There is a courtesy bus making several stops around the garden which is great for less mobile visitors. Mayfield’s Café & Kiosk will be open from 9am – 4.30pm.
Mayfield Park Drive: 15 April 2018; 9am-4.30pm
During the Autumn Festival, Mayfield Garden are hosting a ‘Park Drive – Horse Carriage Event.’ It is based on the British concept of individuals putting on their best outfits and driving out with horses and carriages around a short course while they are judged on their turnouts for such things as: elegance, obedience of horses and overall appearance. You can witness the event and judging when you enter the garden.
Visit Mayfield Garden for these great events or just make a day trip out of it and enjoy the spectacular garden.
