DAY TWO – Friday 27 October

After a relaxing breakfast we will head off to begin our ‘Garden Spectacular’ tour. The gardens we visit will be confirmed once the Official Programme is available. As our regulars know we like to vary the visits each year so we have the opportunity to see as many different gardens as possible. BD

these will be confirmed once we have the programme. BD

DAY FOUR – Sunday 29 October

Yes, the extra day exploring again! The extra day that we introduced last year proved to be very successful so we will be repeating again this year. We will look to visit some additional gardens in the morning before a free afternoon to explore the city. As usual, these will be confirmed when the official programme is available. BD

DAY FIVE – Monday 30 October

Unfortunately, today is our last day and we will be departing after breakfast to head home, with a few stops on the way for morning tea then Lunch, we will arrive home mid to late afternoon. B
