Celebrate early with pre-festival events

Golf Day


Our John Spencer designed, par 71, 5706 meter 18-hole golf course was described by one golf scribe as the Augusta National of the Sapphire Coast. The 11am shot gun start heralds a competitive but friendly 4 person Ambrose with a few surprises along the way and a snack at the end.

Cost is $20 per person or $80 per team. Prizes to the winning team, nearest the pin, nearest the line. Nail a hole in one and win a three day weekend holiday package at Eden Tourist Park – in a four star cabin!

Sponsored by Cat Balou Cruises, supported by Eden Golf Pro Shop and the gentlemen and lady golfers of Eden.

Open gardens

Open Gardens Eden Magnet

Our best gardens will be open to the public the weekend prior to the festival. This long running event is hugely popular and features gardens from Eden and Nethercote.

Each has a different theme – it could be maritime and coastal, inland and food orientated, sculpture or permaculture.

Tickets $10, available on the day at the Lioness pop-up shop located opposite Eden Gateway Holiday Park.

Hosted by Eden Lioness Club.
