Collectors’Plant Fair Day Tour
Join us for a garden lover’s day out to the Collectors’ Plant Fair! Our day tour takes you to the heart of this hugely successful plant fair held every autumn in the grounds of historic Hawkesbury Race Club. The Fair is a dynamic mix of stalls, specialist plant growers and garden retailers – a must visit for any plant enthusiast and the country vibe is so fun! It’s the perfect place to find long lost plants, meet growers, sip good coffee and connect with other planty people. Our day tour has everything organised for you and makes visiting the fair a breeze.
Meet at Ross Garden Tours HQ for a cuppa & biscuits before boarding the bus and heading for the Collectors’ Plant Fair. Kirsty Noble is your Ross Tour Leader for the day. On the bus, Kirsty will give a rundown on the Fair, hand out maps and generally make sure you’re organised to make the most of your visit.
Priority entry means we avoid the entry queues and head straight into the Fair to meet up with Linda Ross. Linda organises this fantastic event and is keen to personally share her Fair tips and plant highlights. Then it’s time to explore… there’s plenty of room to store plant buys on the bus, so shop away!
Meet up again for lunch at our reserved seating spot which Linda has organised just for us! Kirsty will have our lunches ready there so there’s no waiting or hassling with queues.
After lunch, we head up to Bilpin to meet Peta Trahar, the co-founder of Collectors’ Plant Fair. Peta is showing us her private garden which has featured with Graham on Better Homes & Gardens, written about by the Garden Clinic and appeared in many other garden publications. Peta has a lovely nursery there as well so be ready to find some more plant treasures!
Its apple season and stopping at a Bilpin pie shop for freshly made apple pies is the perfect way to end our day!
This is a great day out for any plant lover. Spend it with your mum, girlfriend or husband and take home some fantastic new plants for your home & garden!
