ACT Monaro Riverina Branch: A visit to the Lodge Garden, Canberra

8 September 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm AEST

We are absolutely delighted that we have received approval for an early spring visit to The Lodge garden – a wonderful replacement for the visit that Covid prevented us from making in 2020.

The garden dates from 1927 and contains many fine old trees. It reflects garden elements from the 1920s with later additions and modifications that show evolving garden practices and taste.

Our morning visit will offer us an opportunity to learn something of the history of the garden, as well as how it is cared for now.  We will then have a guided tour as well as time to browse and admire the plantings. This is strictly a garden visit and no access to the house will be permitted, and no catering will be provided. There are external toilets.

Arrival time: It is important that we are ready and organised for the security check at 10.30 am. Please make sure you arrive no later than 10.20 am.

Departure time: 12.30 pm.

Book: at TryBooking. There is no charge for this event. Numbers are limited, so early booking is recommended.  Tickets are not transferable.  Bookings will close at 6 pm on Monday 4 September.

When you book, make sure you include your first and family name, and that these match what is on your photo id (e.g. your driving licence).  On the day of the visit, you will be required to provide your photo id and this will be checked before you are admitted to the garden.
