The Rotary Club of Hunters Hill in partnership with Hunter’s Hill Council is gearing up to continue the Hunters Hill Spring Garden Competition as an annual celebratory event to mark its standing as Australia’s oldest garden suburb.

This year, the competition will be proudly sponsored by Matthew Ward and Tracey Dixon from McGrath Hunters Hill. As the sponsor of last year's event, McGrath Hunters Hill is excited to again be presenting the event.

"Hunters Hill has some of the most picturesque gardens in Sydney so we are thrilled to be on board again, this year with Matt,” Tracey said.

“We look forward to seeing Hunters Hill horticultural talents on display once again,” Matthew said.

Rotary Club of Hunters Hill President, Charles Amos said he was looking forward to building on the success of the competition which attracted over 500 attendees last year.

"The Rotary Club of Hunters Hill are again pleased to be working in conjunction with Hunter’s Hill Council on the 2024 Spring Garden Competition,” he said.

“All funds raised will again be directed to improving the Hillman Orchard on Alexandra Street, Hunters Hill."

Hunter’s Hill Council Mayor, Zac Miles, said he was pleased to see the event coming back.

"We were delighted to see a wide range of beautiful gardens in the competition last year and the fantastic community support for the open garden day,” Cr Miles said.

“This year, we hope to see even more stunning gardens, native habitats, balconies, courtyards, streetscapes, and public spaces running in the competition.”

The competition will again feature categories including:

  • Overall best garden
  • Best small balcony and courtyard garden
  • Best native inspired ‘habitat-friendly’ garden
  • Best streetscape garden
  • Best beautified or maintained public space

Residents living in the Hunters Hill local government area can participate in the competition for free.

Online registrations are now open on the Council's website until Saturday 14 September, with judging and prize presentations scheduled for 20 September 2024, followed by the Open Garden Day on 22 September.

Like last year, the community will be able to take a tour of the winning gardens and some of the gardens from historic estates in our municipality during an open garden day.
