Welcome to our website

Open 365 days per year, West Lynn Garden is a public garden covering 2.5 hectares, created and run by volunteers. Formed in 1981 on land originally owned by the Eden Garden Society, the West Lynn Garden Society is now an independent organisation of people with a love of gardening and a commitment to the creation and maintenance of a unique environment for the enjoyment of all.
The $3 visitor entry fee is used to maintain the plants, trees, butterfly house and the many features which are unique to West Lynn Garden. Our Function Centre is very popular for weddings and functions of all kinds. See the Venue Hire page for more information.

Please note. West Lynn Garden has a No Dogs policy. Guide Dogs excepted.

We are open every day over the Christmas break including Christmas Day.
Please remember your $3 entry fee. As a not-for-profit society we rely on your support to maintain the garden.
Best Wishes - Enjoy your visit.

West Lynn Garden's crowd pleasers, the New Zealand Monarch Butterflies are out and about in the Butterfly House NOW! They will continue to flutter and fascinate visitors through to March 2021 and beyond.
