Beyond Blue are the proud official charity partners for the 2023 Show, and they'd love children and families of all ages to visit their charity garden space (B58) and get involved in the many fun, interactive activities they'll have set up across the five show days.
This year's two dedicated entertainment stage gardens (Sound of Colour and Colour Muse) have been designed by 2022 Emergent Gardens Winner Chin Liew, and will host musicians playing live music throughout the five days. The garden stages showcase a wide variety of plants with maximum colour. The Show has made a conscious effort to move towards a more sustainable event, so watch out for signs as they grow sustainably, turn waste into compost, and recycle things like cups that turn into coffee trays, outdoor furniture, traffic infrastructure and more.
