The Nambour Showgrounds come alive with celebrity garden gurus giving talks and demonstrations, heaps of amazing plants are for sale, great displays of landscaping supplies, there are water features, inventions, artworks, floral art, clothes, coffee, food, wine, live animals and so much more.
We are going to in to be in the main marquee area again this year....we've outgrown the Giant Kitchen Garden! We'll make our stall fit in with the BIG nurseries here....we're planning to put in a Reflection Garden with some themed edible landscape around our exhibit! )We won the PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD in 2019....so some big shoes to fill in 2022!)

Oh yeah...we also are going to be entering an exhibit into the Reflection Garden Competition again (if they'll have us!) building a 6m x 3m edible landscape- with help from our SUPER creative colleagues who make hardscape furniture type stuff. Come along and vote for us in the "People's Choice Award"! AND maybe the judges will like us in 2022!
Redcliffe Garden and Lifestyle Expo
TBA July 2022
We've been in this for two years, and had such a great time....the location was a very nice little Botanic Gardens/parkland setting with some community gardens to visit as well. Great speakers (including us!) and a range of crafts, food and plant related items. Some really great vibes close to Brisbane!
Wow, this event really delivers the goods! Before the COVID chaos that stopped events, they had Costa give some inspiring presentations, and we shared the same stage....bringing tastes of rare and delicious edibles to the Moreton Bay audience! Awesome.
The range of bespoke products, some live music and groovy sustainablity-minded people like us makes it well worth the small gold coin entry fee! Be there or be square.
Botanical Bazaar 2022
6th and 7th of August 2022 8am-3pm
We think that this event ROCKS! It is like a garden expo with an arty twist....so hip and groovy...oh yeah, there's a BAR with boutique beers and cider. LOVE that. (One year we hung out there (once the event was over!) and partied with all the cool garden peeps. (But that's another story!)
Seriously, there is a very special vibe at Botanical Bazaar...like the Gold Coast/Hinterland and Northern Rivers, of NSW all got together and grew a beautiful baby. Excellent exhibitors and plenty of shady areas for picnics and frolicking around! Roving arty entertainment and all family friendly...but also super HIP!
See you there! PS We are super excited that it's now a TWO day event!!! And we are praying to the plant gods that Gold Coast Rotary and their team get to do it with us this year because it is AMMMAAAAZING!
