Tickets are selling fast for this unique new international garden show, which will be held in the grounds of Sydney’s Centennial Park from Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 September.

Secured by the NSW Government, the Australian Garden Show Sydney plans to set a new benchmark for horticultural events.

“The inaugural Australian Garden Show Sydney will herald the start of 29 various floral and garden shows that take place each year throughout regional NSW,” Mr Souris said.

“The Australian Garden Show Sydney is set to become a landmark event on the NSW Events Calendar and is estimated to contribute at least $12 million to the State’s economy over the next three years.”
“What better venue to showcase Sydney-style gardening than Centennial Park, which this year celebrates its 125th anniversary,” Mr Souris said.

Visitors to the Australian Garden Show Sydney are advised to avoid the queues by pre-booking tickets to the show, which will feature a Grand Floral Pavilion, retail and nursery displays, a fully sustainable kitchen garden, informative garden talks, photography, floral and cooking workshops, a potting tent for children and an array of bars and restaurants.

Minister for the Environment, Robyn Parker, said: “The Australian Garden Show Sydney offers the perfect educational experience for those interested in learning how to grow successfully in Sydney’s sunny environment. It is an event that fuses design, creativity and sustainability to offer an incomparable experience for visitors.”

International horticultural experts will be on hand at the Show in the garden talk series, while leading designer gardens, spectacular floral installations and a Kitchen Garden – where you can learn to grow veggies on your balcony – offer educational and fun experiences for garden lovers.

Destination NSW CEO, Sandra Chipchase said: “Destination NSW is pleased to support the Australian Garden Show Sydney in what will be a fantastic event for garden enthusiasts and horticulturists from around the world. This is an event, which will clearly set the benchmark for flower, landscape design and gardening shows in the Asia-Pacific.”
