Garden lovers from around Australia and overseas are expected to flock to Sydney in September when the city hosts the inaugural Australian Garden Show in Centennial Park from September 5-8, 2013.
A NSW Government event, The Australian Garden Show will be held in the Brazilan Fields West in Centennial Park, and is expected to quickly gain national and international credibility, attracting garden lovers from around the world.
Accommodation in the city is expected to be at a premium for the spring event, so garden enthusiasts are advised to book now to avoid disappointment.
Metro Hotel Sydney Central and Metro Hotel on Pitt are two properties located within walking distance of Centennial Park, with both hotels offering a range of affordable packages.
Metro Hotel Sydney Central is the Metro Hospitality Group’s flagship property on the corner of Pitt and Hay Streets in the heart of Sydney.
The hotel recently completed a two year refurbishment that saw a complete upgrade of its rooms and facilities, and its location opposite the Capitol Theatre in the Entertainment Precinct makes it the perfect choice for garden enthusiasts wanting to be close to the Park so they can make the most of the day.
Also located on Pitt Street, Metro Hotel on Pitt is a stylish boutique hotel closer to the city centre and better suited for guests wanting to mix a visit to the Garden Show with some shopping and sightseeing in the heart of the city. A short bus trip will take you to the show.
The event has been designed as the ultimate garden showcase and will appeal not only to experienced gardeners, landscapers and designers but also novices and the many people who just like to admire the handiwork of other people’s green thumbs and creativity.
The Australian Garden Show Sydney will combine display gardens designed by leading landscape architects, workshops presented by gardening gurus and personalities, a potting tent for children, products to purchase and a high tea marquee which, come nightfall, transforms into a floral cocktail bar setting – complemented by the now established Centennial Park Light Garden.
The Australia Garden Show Sydney also coincides with Centennial Park’s 125th Anniversary, providing another reason to visit the show in its first year. Metro Hotel Sydney Central and Metro Hotel on Pitt are located less than five kilometres from Centennial Parklands, and can be reached by bus, train or on foot.
