Hunters Hill will soon have an event to celebrate its standing as Australia’s oldest garden suburb.

The Rotary Club of Hunters Hill in partnership with Hunter’s Hill Council is bringing an inaugural Spring Garden Competition to Hunters Hill in 2023.

The competition will celebrate public and private spaces and raise funds for the maintenance of the historic Hillman Orchard, located beside Vienna Cottage in Alexandra Street, Hunters Hill.

“This will be a showcase of our amazing gardens, native habitats, balconies and courtyards, streetscapes and public places and will be a fitting celebration for Australia’s oldest garden suburb,” Hunters Hill Mayor Zac Miles said.

Rotary Club of Hunters Hill President Charles Amos said local garden lovers and those with a green thumb were encouraged to start planning now.

“The competition will give residents and families the chance to showcase their skills, creativity and hard work in the garden,” he said.

Entry will be free to residents living in the Hunters Hill local government area.

Online registrations will open from July on the Council’s website, with judging and prize presentations to take place during Spring.

The competition will 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
