Khandallah Kindergarten is providing a unique opportunity to explore some of the stunning houses and gardens of Khandallah. Get some inspiration for your own house or garden on this fun day out.

The 13 properties featured are a mix of traditional and contemporary styles, so there will be something for everyone. Take an ikebana class, get refreshments at the vintage-style cafe, or buy plants to take home.

Proceeds of the event will go towards improving the outdoor area for the kindergarten's 80 children.

We appreciate the support of our community and sponsors and love to see people enjoying themselves in our lovely suburb.”
