Queensland Garden Expo will showcase the most extensive range of plants you are likely to see anywhere in Queensland in one location. With dozens of nurseries expected in 2024, many of our nurseries will already be busy getting a fantastic range of plants ready for July.

All the nursery owners are experts in their field and will be excited to share the best way to care for your plants once you get them home. You’ll find most of the nurseries in the undercover pavilions and a few scattered on the oval. Be sure to stop by any one of them and ask for a recommendation on what would best suit your garden at home.
