Bathurst Spring Spectacular 2020 – An Update

Following careful consideration, and in light of the uncertainty surrounding government-mandated  Covid – 19 restrictions as well as a number of other factors, the Bathurst Spring Spectacular Committee has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Bathurst Spring Spectacular garden weekend, which was to be held in October this year, to 2021.

Apart from not wanting to put visitors, volunteers and garden owners at risk, the severe water restrictions as a result of the drought has meant that it has been extremely difficult to find suitable gardens for the Spectacular and recent withdrawals by owners has reduced the number of gardens below that which are required to make the event viable.

As it takes garden owners many months of work and expense to prepare a garden for this event , it was necessary to make the decision to postpone sooner rather than later. Next year, with (hopefully) a return to kinder conditions, many local gardens which have suffered as a result of the drought will have recovered and even adapted to flourish again.

At this stage, we are proceeding with plans to run the Plant and Garden Expo. in Lions Berry Park on Saturday 24th October and we would encourage Gardeners’ Club members as well as community members to support this exciting event featuring many stalls and demonstrations.

We plan to make the 2021 Bathurst Spring Spectacular a wonderful celebration for all garden lovers and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to Bathurst to enjoy our beautiful gardens and a return to a safer and healthy world.
