Only an hour’s drive from the Black Gold Motel, is Mayfield Gardens, a beautiful estate nestled in the Central Tablelands in Oberon. Originally established as a sheep farm, transformed and tendered by local talent, Mayfield Gardens is one of Regional New South Wales’ most popular and breathtaking tourist attractions.
A total of 65 hectares of cool climate gardens can be found at Mayfield, divided into two primary displays: The Mayfield Landscape (16 acres) and Hawkins’ Family Garden (49 acres). Every person who has worked there over the years has put their heart and soul into the gardens, showcasing amazing gardening talent and standards in a beautifully subtle way.
This unique and special tourist attraction is open year-round from 9 am to 4:30 pm, and the last entry time is 3 pm. It is closed only for Christmas Day and Boxing Day. A cool climate garden will give you a tremendous outdoor experience in every season: from the blooming water lilies in summer to the brilliant fall colors, to the lush growth and fragrant scents in spring.
