Exposure to a key target market via workshops, displays and demonstrations of the latest and greatest in home and garden.
The Sunshine Coast Branch of the Nursery & Garden Industry held the inaugural Expo 29 years ago, with the aim of providing the general public with expert advice and information on a range of gardening subjects in an enjoyable and accessible format.
This first event, in 1985, was a one day event with 30 exhibitors, 300 visitors, 5 workshops and a Plant Clinic. Guided by a dedicated group of volunteers the event quickly grew over the ensuing years to become the 3 day event it is today.
Gardening is always rated in the top 3 or 4 most favoured recreational activities and the fact that the Expo continues to grow in size and visitor numbers indicates that it is still as relevant now as it was 30 years ago.
See plants, plants and more plants with over 55 nurseries represented and over 360 exhibitors. There is a full program of free lectures and demonstrations on eight "live" stages every day covering a vast array of gardening topics. Head to the 'Gardeners and Gourmets' stage for some great tips on growing your own produce and turning it into delicious gourmet meals. The 'Giant Kitchen Garden' features a totally organic food court with a fully planted sustainable garden constructed onsite. Get free help with gardening problems and plant identification from the onsite Plant Clinic and be inspired by the fantastic arrangements in the Floral Design Competition.
