Macleay garden rambles event this weekend and teach savvy courses for seniors

Macleay Garden Rambles event

It’s time to put your comfortable shoes on and grab some fresh air while you have a wander around seven inviting gardens. Some of our residents have kindly opened their gates to the community to enjoy and share in their ‘pride and joy’.

Garden Rambles in the Macleay is open to the public this Saturday and Sunday. You have the chance to pick up some spring plants at the plant stalls, and to relax and enjoy the atmosphere with morning and afternoon teas available.

The cost of entry is $5 to visit one garden and $25 for all seven, with the proceeds being kindly donated to the Kempsey PCYC, the Kempsey Hospital Auxillary and F.A.W.N.A.  

The locations are spread across three areas of Kempsey, including the bonus of a stroll down Lord Street to enjoy the neighbourhood.

The garden in Yarravel features three 18-year old bromeliads, and there are three gardens at Dondingalong which are all splendid in their own way.

To help you plan your day: 

  1. 14 Lord Street, Kempsey
  2. 72 Griffins Lane, West Kempsey
  3. 2 Hillview Drive, Yarravel
  4. 17 Macquarie Street, South Kempsey
  5. 418 Pipers Creek Road, Dondingalong
  6. 33 Mollies Way, Dondingalong
  7. 38 Mollies Way, Dondingalong

Enjoy a taste of spring - and remember to slap on some sunscreen and slip on a hat! For more information visit: facebook.com/kempseyshirecouncil.
