Designers in Attendance

The key distinguishing feature of Garden DesignFest is that all the gardens on display are designed by professional garden designers.

To add to the visual pleasure of visiting the gardens,such as this garden in Armadale designed by Robert Boyle, you also have the opportunity to personally meet the designers at each garden and to discuss their work and how they handled the challenges the site presented.

End Trachoma by 2020

Garden DesignFest is organised by Rotary to raise funds for charity. The main charity to benefit from this year's Garden DesignFest is End Trachoma by 2020. Trachoma is an infectious eye disease that can be prevented with good hygiene practices.

Since the event began in 2004, more than $500,000 has been donated to charity.
