The Karrakatta Club visits

Members of Australia’s longest established club for women attended a private tour of the Gardens today.

The Karrakatta Club was founded in 1894 – making it almost as old as Government House – by members of the St George’s Reading Circle. The goal was to unite the women of the colony into a community and to advocate for the interests of women.

Today, members of the club strolled around the grounds, marvelling at the ancient oaks, cooing over the stunning floral display and cornering our resident rose expert for tips and hints on how to best care for their own gardens.

Tours of the Gardens are available to community groups and schools on request.
