It’s a wrap up for another successful year for Millthorpe village with the Millthorpe Garden Ramble and Art Trail. Garden and art lovers across Australia came in droves of buses and cars to witness all the gardens with their historic homes and experience an eclectic mix of art in the additional art trail.

Now in its 13th year, the Millthorpe Garden Ramble and Art Trail was significantly special this year tying in with the 150 anniversary for Millthorpe. To mark this historic occasion the book – Historic Homes of Millthorpe and District - was compiled and launched by the Golden Memories Museum committee and the historic homes were syndicated into the Millthorpe Garden Ramble and Art Trail.

Ten historic houses featured in the book, were featured with their garden in the ramble with some featuring art. Close to 2000 people attended the weekend proving to be larger in attendance than in previous years.

President of the Millthorpe Garden Ramble, Lyndall Harrison stated that the weekend was thriving with activity in the village and surrounds. One notable introduction to this year was the increase of the younger demographic to the Millthorpe Garden Ramble.
