Closures - Corbett Gardens
Please note that Corbett Gardens will be closed for setup on Sunday 16 and Monday 17 September for the Tulip Time setup.
During Tulip Time the usual entry gates into Corbett Gardens via Merrigang & Wingecarribee Streets will be closed. A centralised entry/exit gate will be located on Bendooley Street. Coach setdown/drop off and pick up will be along Bendooley Street. Nb: that the Merrigang Street entrance will be open on weekends, but Coach groups will still need to enter via the Bendooley Street gates.
Arrival At The Gardens
In an effort to eliminate visitors waiting and queuing at the gates, the group/coach escort is requested to finalise payment (if paying on the day) where (in most cases) they will be met by a Tulip Time guide to discuss and provide instructions.
Coach parking is located away from Corbett Gardens at Bradman Oval.
The toilets in Corbett Gardens are limited. We would suggest that if time permits that you make a stop on your way through at the Southern Highlands Welcome Centre 62-70 Main Street, Mittagong which provides award winning public toilet facilities and coach parking.
