Go Green On Father's Day
Calling all dads with green thumbs! Noosa Botanic Gardens Plant Fair is on Sunday 4th September from 9am. Last year over 2000 people attended and this year promises to be bigger and better!

Visitors will be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing which plants to buy, plus there will be expert guest speakers, classic cars, and raffles too. Entry is free and your purchase of specially propagated plants will help support the Friends of Noosa Botanic Gardens to continue their terrific work.
