Queensland Garden Expo

One of Australia’s largest gardening events, the Queensland Garden Expo, will this year celebrate its 30th anniversary as it attracts over 35,000 gardening enthusiasts and horticultural experts from across Australia and New Zealand  to the Nambour Showgrounds between 11-13 July.

 After planting the seed to build a successful gardening event in 1985, organisers could not have imagined that 30 years later the Expo would offer an action-packed program including 125 free lectures and demonstrations across eight stages, as well as more than 360 exhibitors and displays by over 55 nurseries selling over 40,000 plants per day.

The Expo will once again commemorate gardener extraordinaire, columnist and long-time radio and television personality, Colin Campbell with the Colin Campbell Gumboot Auction, which follows on from the great success of the Colin Campbell Garden Shed Auction last year, where enough money was raised to support five community garden projects.

 “This year’s auction introduces a new twist, with Expo visitors given the opportunity to bid in a silent auction for gumboots that have been decorated by a number of well-known local identities and celebrities.”
