Coromandel Gardens – the Neverending Garden
Hoekwil Open Gardens
Saturday 6 – Sunday 7 November
Hoekwil village, 7km inland of Wilderness, has become known over the last 8 years for showcasing country gardening with a twist. With a backdrop of the Outeniqua Mountains, the sea and lakes, these large gardens lend themselves to sweeping expanses of colourful flowerbeds, from formal to natural indigenous. Ponds, dams and unusual water features add interest to the mass planting of roses, aloes and succulents, with pathways leading through forests. Hoekwil is a popular destination for visitors looking for beautiful scenery, interesting eateries, quaint nurseries and a laid-back atmosphere.
Times: 09:00 –16:00
Entrance: R50 per person for both days. Children free.
Tickets are available on the days at a kiosk outside the Hoekwil Post Office in Kerkstraat. Look out for signage.
