Ever wondered what’s behind the Mansfield door?

Ever wondered what’s behind the Mansfield door? Want to see things hidden from the public eye? Curious about where the staff keep all their shovels?

The Friends of Hamilton Gardens are delighted to present a new fundraising event. Book now for the unprecedented opportunity to tour behind the scenes at Hamilton Gardens. 

What's in store?
This journey starts as you step through the front door in the Mansfield Garden and explore the staff-only access lanes which go around (and under!) the Hamilton Gardens site. See what goes on away from public view and have a sneak peek of unfinished gardens currently under development... We then finish up with complimentary refreshments at the Hamilton Gardens Cafe.

What should I bring?
Comfortable flat-soled shoes are required and gumboots are recommended if the weather has been wet! The tour will be lead by a senior Hamilton Gardens staff member and numbers are limited. 

Spread the word - don't spill the secrets
We hope that you will enjoy seeing behind-the-scenes and will let other people know about the highlights of your experience. You are welcome to take photos for personal use.
