8 interactive maps: Carnival of Flowers competition gardens

THE Chronicle Garden Competition gardens attract thousands of people each year during the Carnival of Flowers period. 

Visitors and residents are able to tour the gardens and chat to home owners about the years and months of hard work that have gone into creating the award-winning gardens.

Tens of thousands of people will check out the work of our passionate green thumbs over the next 10 days.

This year they will be open to the public from Friday, September 20 to Sunday, September 29.

To make it easier for those wanting to check out the gardens The Chronicle has compiled eight interactive maps.

There is one map with all entrants across the region, as well as seven self-driving garden loop maps.

There are garden loop maps starting at Queens Park, Picnic Point, Laurel Bank Park, Crows Nest and Pittsworth as well as a driving map from Spring Bluff Railway Station to Highfields.
