Inspiring new ideas for your home and garden
Discover all you need for your ideal home at Better Home and Gardens LIVE. Whether you're a renovator, foodie, DIY or craft lover, gardening or interiors addict, you won't want to miss Better Homes and Gardens LIVE, held at Melbourne Showgrounds from 3-5 May 2013. It's the only place to go for all the latest products, advice and tips for your home and garden.

Get inspired with live demonstrations and workshops from your favourite Better Homes and Gardens experts and shop for the latest gadgets and technology from more than 250 exhibitors at our one-stop home and garden product showcase.



Think of the show as Better Homes and Gardens magazine coming to life, with interactive chapters:

You will find four dedicated zones (food, home, craft and gardening & pets), packed with all the products, experiences and experts you need to bring you inspiration, ideas and solutions. Better Homes and Gardens LIVE has everything you need for your ideal home!

Food Zone

Find yourself in gourmet heaven in the Food Zone. Pick up time-saving tips, fabulous recipe ideas from Woolworths Select, and tempting samples from a range of stalls. With everything from ice-cream makers to slow cookers on display, there will be gadgets galore to try and buy.

Fast Ed and Karen Martini bring their unique cooking styles to the stage teaching you tempting recipes to impress your friends and family.



Home Zone

From a lick of paint to a full renovation, we have it covered in the Home Zone. Meet DIY heroes and interior design gurus, discover new products to get your projects off to a great start and join Rob Palmer on some essential DIY projects using RYOBI tools.
Enjoy the energy and imagination of Tara Dennis and Rob Palmer as they bring home-decorating and DIY ideas to life with a little help from RYOBI.
