Open 10am to 4.30pm. Saturday to Tuesdays plus Anzac Day. All works are original and for sale. Join this fabulous event and have the opportunity to view works from established and emerging artists

For over a decade the Society has been supporting an active group of talented artists many who exhibit both nationally and internationally. The group include artists who regularly exhibit in major exhibitions at both the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne and Sydney, as well as members who have exhibited works in major international institutions such as the Hunt Institute, USA, and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, London.
The Macedon Ranges has a long history of botanic artists including the 19th century Mt Macedon resident Ellis Rowan, naturalist and illustrator, whose botanic artwork is in numerous national galleries and institutions and in the 20th century Joan Law-Smith, well respected gardener, botanic artist, writer and patron who created the magnificent Macedon garden, Bolobek. Today's artists are continuing this tradition while adopting a contemporary approach and style, and a wish to capture the bio-diversity of plants found in both the natural landscape and historic gardens.
