Queensland Garden Expo – 2018 Dates & Ticket Prices
If you have a particularly difficult gardening question, then stop by the Plant Clinic where you can get specialised help with your plant problem. This is a free service which is included in the price of your ticket. Kids under 15 get in FREE to this event, so bring them along as there are heaps of activities for kids with many interactive displays including a kids garden patch as well as a playground on site. Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted inside the expo.
The best thing about the Queensland Garden Expo is the Plant Cloak Room. You can purchase as many plants as you like throughout the day and, for a gold coin donation, leave your purchases here where they will be looked after until you are ready to leave.
To get to and from the expo, there is a free shuttle bus from 9am daily to meet and drop off visitors arriving by train at the Nambour station. A specially set up “Expo Bus Stop” will be located outside the entrance to the station and the bus will collect passengers approximately every 20 minutes from this Expo bus stop. If driving, you can park in the Nambour Showgrounds for $7.00 per car.
