Wondai Autumn Garden Expo to draw a crowd
WONDAI is set to host one of Queensland's most diverse garden expos this weekend.
The 2018 Autumn Garden Expo will mark its 21st annual show and welcome stallholders and visitors from all reaches of Southern Queensland.
There will be many displays, with the sheer diversity of plants on show being a strong feature of the expo due to the region's warm climate.
Stalls of particular interest over the weekend will include the frangipanis, pelargoniums, ferns, foliage, natural beauty preparations, herbs, succulents and orchids.
Garden designer and plantsman Russell Young will be a special guest speaker at the expo speaking at 11am and 1.30pm on Saturday and holding workshops on garden design and planning on the Sunday
The expo will run in conjunction with floral themed exhibitions in the Wondai art gallery and the horticulture and photography show, and the popular multi-draw raffle.
There will be a varied choice of food and refreshments available from canteens and stalls, which will raise funds for local clubs.
The crowds will be able to enjoy live music from band Fabio Tolli on the Saturday.
The exp will take place at the Wondai sportsground and Lion's pavilion in Wondai, off the Bunya Highway, and will be open on Saturday from 7.30am to 4.30pm, and on Sunday from 7.30am to 1pm.
