Bundaberg Orchid Society is once again holding its annual autumn orchid show at the Bundaberg Civic Centre from Friday 10 to Sunday 12 May this year.

The group has shared details about this popular and much-loved local event:

We are very lucky to have one of the best orchid clubs in Australia, with many experienced members who so readily share their wealth of knowledge about all aspects of growing this queen of plants.

Each year our show attracts exhibitors from among our local members, as well as from sister clubs Childers, Maryborough, Hervey Bay and Gladstone.  

Visitors from all over Australia attend our show which is renowned as one of the best orchid shows in Queensland. 

Exhibitors work all year, preparing plants for entry into over 40 classes of orchids, with prizes for each class donated by our extremely generous sponsors.

As it is Mother’s Day weekend, our talented group of flower-arrangers will be making flower posies that are available for purchase at a very modest price; a perfect gift for every Mum.

The show also features a decorated throne chair for guests to make a photographic record of their visit, a lovely memento for everyone.

Specially-selected reputable commercial growers will be selling quality plants and supplies, and club-members will have locally-grown plants for sale at very reasonable prices. 

We will also have experienced growers on hand to advise you how to get the best out of your plants, including growing conditions, watering, feeding and general care.

To make your visit even more enjoyable, Cruz the Bakehouse will be offering morning tea and light lunches.

There is a seating area in the Civic Centre, where you can sit and enjoy your refreshments.

For those who are new to the area, the Civic Centre is at 188-190 Bourbong Street, Bundaberg.
