Mayfield was established in 1984, initially as a sheep farm. The heart of the property has been gradually transformed – with the help of talented local landscapers and tradespeople – from bare paddocks into one of the largest, privately owned cool climate gardens in the world.
The magnificent gardens of Europe have inspired Mayfield. Owned by the Hawkins family, Mayfield Garden (open 363 days of the year) and The Hawkins’ Family Garden, together, cover more than 64 hectares (160 acres).
While the garden represents one family’s dream, the long-term vision is that people from near and far will enjoy it for generations to come.
Make your way through the English Box Hedge maze, stroll through the orchards, explore the unique creation of the stumpery, then up to the bluestone chapel at the highest point of Mayfield Garden before meandering back down through the blossoming water garden to the Garden centre café and kiosk for a bite to eat.
Mayfield open hours are 9.00 am to 4.30 pm Monday – Sunday. Tickets can be purchased online or in our ticket office on the day. You can enter the garden at any time, and last entry into the garden is 3.00 pm.
