Shows and events








3 September 

Botanical Bazaar Gold Coast Gardening Expo

Lovers of nature, get excited! This event showcases everything green from urban organic gardening, to sustainable living and botanical ‘must-haves’.

The event is supported by Tropical Fruit World and offers over 15 educational talks and workshops from the likes of Costa Georgiadis, Phil Dudman, Julia-Rose (International botanical artist) and Green-Living Australia.

Kids can go wild at Mr Fothergill’s Kids Hub, hosted by Natura Education. Visit the Backyard Critters and Botanical Homeware sections, and why not take home one of the many attractive plants for sale. Don’t forget to meander through the community gardens and see how aquaponic and hydroponic systems work up close.  

Tip: Bring a car with a big boot. It won’t go home empty!
