WANTED!
Notice of your club shows and garden-related events. Send to:

The purpose of this page is to inform the public of plant and garden-related happenings around Queensland. It's a place for people who may have heard about an event to come to look for more information. It's also designed to be easy to browse, for those who are simply looking for something to do on the weekend.

A basic, text-only listing on this page is FREE. You're welcome to use this calendar to promote garden shows, eco festivals, garden open days, grand openings, demonstrations, workshops, talks, seminars, bus trips, magazine or book launches etc if there's a component of plants or gardening. Both non-profit (clubs, societies, government, charity etc) AND commercial organisations (nursery and garden industry, events promoters, publishers etc) may all list here for free. Interstate or international garden tours originating in Queensland may also be included.
Enhanced Listings

Larger, attention-grabbing listings including logo and other images
(like the green-bordered entries above) are now available at low cost.

More information here

Information can be taken from your website, fliers, brochures, media releases or your own calendar of events. However, a summarised version submitted as plain electronic text (for easy cutting & pasting) is preferred and will help get your listing online faster. Please note that any submitted material may be edited.

Notification as far in advance as possible is encouraged. This will give your listing a greater chance of being seen by potential visitors and stall holders. Events a year ahead or more will be posted if you have firm dates. You can submit more details closer to the event if you want. Don't forget a link to your website!

Other general-interest news related to plants or gardens in Qld is also invited for possible use elsewhere, such as the weekly email publication Get Results Gardening.
