Upcoming Plant Festivals for El Arish Tropical Exotics


Clients often ask us where in Cairns they can purchase our plants. In addition to the Mission Beach Monster Markets we attend several of the Cairns plant festivals.
The third annual Tropical Garden Fair will be held at Cannon Park Racecourse on July 11th 2010. There will be displays by local growers and businesses and numerous varieties of locally grown plants will be on sale including many rare and collector species. The plant doctor Roger Goebel will be on hand to give sound advice on any gardening problems. The Cairns Kennel Club will present dog obedience and agility displays during the morning and The Golden Gumboot Toss will be hotly fought out on the track at 2 pm between the local garden clubs and judged by Graham Byrne from the ABC gardening program.
There will be food and drinks available on site and live music. Children will have lots to do on the day with a site for them to pot up their own plant to take home as well as a Jumping Castle and Giant Slide.
The GardenArt Competition – Decorated Pot or Planter suitable for growing plants - will include classes for children through to adults with great prizes to be won.
Nuleaf have once again donated the lucky gate prize of gardening products to the value of $2000, drawn on the day at 5pm.
Gates open Sunday 8.30 am and close at 4.30 pm.
Adults $7.00 Pensioners $4.00 Children under 13 yrs. Free

In September we will be at Carnival on Collins which is held each year on Father’s Day outside of the Cairns Botanical Gardens. Please click on the link below for more info:
