Australia: Springtime Down Under

Join us for a special opportunity to visit gardens in Australia when it’s springtime down under.

Our tour starts in the vibrant city of Sydney and continues on through the Blue Mountains and scenic highlands of New South Wales to the capital city of Canberra.  Continuing to the state of Victoria, we’ll visit charming townships like Daylesford, Dunkeld, and Sorrento, and Grampians National Park. The tour will end in the cultural city of Melbourne. Tour attendees may want to add a few days to their trip and take in the Melbourne Garden DesignFest, taking place the following weekend, before heading home or continuing their travels in Australia or beyond.

Throughout our tour you’ll take in a wide variety of interesting and enjoyable public and private gardens often using indigenous plants. You’ll see wildflowers and visit specialty nurseries like Lambley Nursery as well as gardens designed by leading landscape architects including Paul Bangay and Sam Cox. We’ll take in country estates, historic gardens, small urban gardens, wineries, galleries with sculpture parks, and important botanic gardens such as Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne. All carefully chosen to show you the best that Australia has to offer.

Most importantly, our tour emphasizes fun, quality experiences, and good food. You’ll meet the locals, be entertained in their homes, and leave Australia knowing what a dinkum Aussie is! Please join us!

PHS board member Andrea Testa-Vought will escort this tour. For complete information and a detailed itinerary contact Sterling Tours.
