To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Wellington Valley being discovered by John Oxley the Wellington Garden Group will be holding an Open Garden Day on Sunday 22nd October 2017 between 930am and 5pm. The six gardens which will be open are ‘Nyrang’ c.1898, built of bluestone, ‘Keston’ c.1897, ‘Towri, c.1880’s, ‘Narrawa’ c.1908, 109 Arthur Street, c.1919 and 51 Simpson Street, c.1921. You can visit all six gardens for $20.00 or $5.00 for each garden. The owners of each home are compiling a history of their homes, with handouts available on the day. Please note the homes will not be open to the public, just the gardens. In addition the Wellington Family History Group will be opening their rooms again. There will be a gold coin donation required for entry. Why not take a drive down to Wellington that weekend, check out the gardens of these historic homes as well as our neighbours family history rooms. They can be found at the Oxley Museum, which is run by the group, on the corner of Warne and Percy Streets in Wellington. For more information check out the visit wellington website.
