|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Thursday, repeating until December 19, 2024


Mayfield is regarded as one of the most exclusive, privately owned cool climate gardens in the world.

Mayfield Garden is set out in the countryside midway between Bathurst and Oberon. It is a beautiful 35-minute drive by car and is not serviced by public transport. Without a vehicle of your own, getting to Mayfield may be a little out of reach to some.

That has now changed with the our transfer service departing Bathurst train station every Thursday.

Visit Mayfield from Sydney on the XPT and home again, all in a day.
Sitting at 1000m above sea level in rural NSW, it has to be seen to be believed. There is no parallel to this magnificent garden. With the 65 hectares of garden open daily, crowds flock to see the elaborate work of the Hawkins family with inspiration drawn from the grand gardens of Europe.
