Waverley Garden Awards


Held every three years, the Waverley Garden Awards:

  • celebrate that gardens can bring joy and tranquillity to those around them
  • recognise that local green thumbs contribute to the quality of our environment, wellbeing, and
  • appreciate that gardens come in all shapes and sizes, creatively introducing diversity and vibrancy to the community.

Any type of garden can be nominated! From balcony gardens to shared veggie patches, native bush gardens to formal courtyards.

Some of the categories for entries include;

  • Dirt Kids
  • Innovative Gardens
  • My Beautiful Garden
  • Special Street and Shared Gardens
  • Second Nature Habitat Garden

Following the nomination and judging, an awards ceremony is held to celebrate the nominees and announce the winners.

Many of the previous Garden Award winners are involved with our public gardening network in Waverley.

The next Garden Awards will be open in September 2022. To find out more about how to nominate, email the Coordinator Local Connections at publicgardening@waverley.nsw.gov.au or phone 0466 428 560.
