Come down to Lanyon and celebrate this year’s autumn harvest and gardens. Explore the property. Immerse yourself in the kitchen gardens. Take a tour of the historic homestead. View the outbuildings, kitchen and stable.
There will also be a range of ticketed events. For our garden lovers, join the bush tucker and veggie growing talks. Get creative with our ‘air-bee-n-bee hotel’, bee wax candles and Victorian floristry workshops. For kids, we have the Garden Drawing Trail. Or join one of the free garden or homestead tours.
Or just bring a picnic rug and enjoy some music in the gardens overlooking the Murrumbidgee River and Brindabellas. You can even pre-book your picnic hamper or High Tea.
Bookings for all ticketed events and food options are required.
