Open Weekend at Como Gardens | The Basin

Open Weekend at Como Gardens | The Basin

Our next Open Garden Week-end occurs on the 14th – 15th October 2017.
This is our 20th year fundraiser for local charity.

We have enjoyed good patronage to these weekends where garden tours and rides on the miniature railway are popular favourites with visitors young and old.

Como Gardens is set in 6 hectares of beautiful landscaped gardens, wetlands, and forest in the foothills of the Dandenongs (roughly 30k from Melbourne).

During our open garden weekends we have frequent conducted tours of the vintage car museum professionally presented by Don Kinsey and Ron Simmons, both highly qualified on this subject and further supported by starting random cars on display, rotationally visiting cars at each event.
