The grounds of Boomeria are full of surprises, including a wonderful pipe organ inside its Chapel Royal. A selection of performers brings to life the repertoire and spirit of this centuries-old synthesizer, and visitors have the opportunity to explore the organ's insides. Enjoy a unique afternoon with hours of organ music, refreshments, and wine, surrounded by the Bonny Doon area forest. Location: Private residence (address provided to ticket holders).

The Baroque Festival’s Music in the Gardens Tour is back by popular demand. This year our tour will feature three luscious private gardens, along with snacks, drinks and wine at each location. Three different music groups complement the natural splendor and culinary selections with music of different ethnic traditions. This event is a fundraiser and proceeds benefit the continued operation of the Baroque Festival’s annual concert season. (Photo by Reinhold Roedig)
