Boonah in bloom
Boonah will be blooming in October with beautiful orchids. These brightly coloured beauties will adorn the Boonah High School Hall on 20th and 21st October for the annual Boonah Orchid Show.



Fragrant perfumes waft through the hall while vibrant purples, yellows and pinks complement the more subtle hues of lavenders, whites and creams.



Grand Cattleya orchids with their striking colours and freckled features, the multiple flower spikes from the Cymbidium orchids and the top-heavy Dendrobium orchids are just some of the exotic plants to be elegantly displayed on the show tables.



Organised by the Boonah Harrisville-Anglican Parish, this orchid show is an absolute delight. Visitors are welcomed between 9am and 4pm on Saturday and 9am to 1pm on Sunday. Entry is $3 for adults and children are free.



Delicious homemade morning and afternoon teas are available. The popular cake and craft stall is back this year, so get in early to pick up some delicious treats!

There's also a raffle with great prizes to be won.



If the stunning orchids have your green thumbs twitching, then orchids and orchid supplies are available for purchase.



Parking is available in the school grounds.
