TikTok loses it over hidden secret garden: 'Heaven on Earth'

Thousands of Aussies are flocking to a hidden gem in NSW which looks as though it leapt from the pages of a storybook.

Mayfield Garden, one of the best-kept secrets near Oberon in NSW's Central West, has been exploding on TikTok and Instagram with visitors sharing photos and videos of the stunning vivid foliage and tranquil ponds.

It is a privately owned 65-hectare garden that is open to the public, but just four times a year people are invited into an exclusive area that includes the 50-hectare private family estate.

It features Australia's largest English Box Hedge Maze, Cascade & Temple, Amphitheatre, Mayfield Chapel, Walled Kitchen Garden and Glasshouse.

One TikTok, which has racked up more than 100,000 views, shows a birdseye view of the technicolour garden before cutting to a waterfall nestled among blazing purple and green trees.


There are so many hidden places to discover within the garden itself, with bridges, stepping stones over ponds and elegant stonework.

The TikToker dubbed Mayfield Garden "heaven on Earth", and added he had "never seen anything like it".

His followers were just as dazzled by the video, with many saying they were desperate to visit.

"Oh wow it's stunning," one said.

"All my years living here and I never knew this existed," a local commented.

"Definitely something I'll put on the bucket list," another said.

Mayfield Garden, just 2.5 hours from Sydney, hold a festival for every season to showcase the entire 65-hectare property, with the Winter Festival starting on July 2 until July 17.

It is a living legacy of the Hawkins family, and they were inspired by gardens in Europe to create this hidden gem.

The garden will be open between 9am and 4.30pm, with the last guests invited in at 3pm.
