| An unexpected adventure |
I was recently approached to do a job unlike any other! You see, ordinarily I work with tourism boards and brands, but for this job a trio of passionate tourism operators banded together to hire me! Bathurst Tours, Mayfield Garden & Jenolan Caves. I was on an adventure!
My first stop was the Mayfield Garden! The Garden is located smack bang between Bathurst and Oberon in country New South Wales. Roughly 3 1/2 hours drive from Sydney via the Blue Mountains. 💁🏼♀️💜
The Mayfield Garden is also likely a little different to other gardens you’ve seen... there are 180 ACRES of it! Mayfield Garden was originally started as a personal project by the owner, but has been open to the public for about four years!
And, apart from being an absolutely exquisite garden, the Mayfield Garden also hosts four major festivals a year. (Spring and Autumn are the biggest but Summer and Winter are awesome too). During these festivals the owner opens parts of his private garden to the public, including the maze! On site there’s also the best cafe and seasonal “glamping”.
Throughout my three nights at the Mayfield Garden I was also hosted by the delightful Ian from Bathurst Tours and Detour Adventures. He runs tours in the area, including an exclusive Mayfield Garden Tour.
Ian took me for an adventure to the Kanangra Boyd National Park and also took me to ...
... The Jenolan Caves! 😱😱😱
So, that’s how I came to be on an unexpected adventure in a part of Australia I’ve never been to before. Here’s the operators if you want to check them out... https://mayfieldgarden.com.au http://bathurstonedaytours.com.au/mobile/ https://m.jenolancaves.org.au
