Proudly presented by the Palm and Cycad Society of Australia on the weekend of 7th-8th March, the event offers Brisbane's keen gardeners the largest range of native and exotic palms plus cycads on show and sale in Australia!
Choose from over 40 different palm varieties at affordable prices which grow well in SE Queensland. This includes small, medium & tall palms; a range of leaf shapes and colours; and varieties which are sun lovers, shade lovers and drought-hardy. As well as rare palms and cycads not commonly seen here!
Whether you are after just a few plants to liven up your garden or are in the midst of creating a brand-new space, the Palm and Cycad Sale and Show is sure to inspire. Experts will be on hand to offer practical advice and help you select the best palms and cycad species for your garden.
Complementing the impressive plant display is a selection of educational displays and a pop-up bookstore, where you'll find specialist books, magazines and posters at drastically discounted prices.
The doors are open from 9am to 4pm on Saturday 7 March and 9am to 3pm on Sunday 8 March. Free parking is available at the venue.
General admission is just $3 ($2 for concession holders). On entry, guests will receive an informative handout detailing the variety of native and exotic palms and cycads and what to look out for (and purchase).
