The spectacle of spring will be celebrated in the anticipated annual Buderim Garden Festival

Buderim Garden Club deputy president Michael Sax and President John Lyons are looking forward to this year’s Festival and Open Garden Program featuring Michael’s Island View Court garden

The best Buderim gardens, garden sculptures, plants and flowers will all be showcased at the anticipated annual Buderim Garden Festival in October.

The Festival, from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th October, is the showcase event of the Buderim Garden Club, which has been a Buderim institution since 1946, and the Festival itself dates back to 1975.

Buderim Garden Club president John Lyon said this year’s festival was coming together better than ever, with a busy three-day schedule including Open Gardens, the Garden Sculpture Exhibition, the Spring Flower Show and Photographic Display, the Church Floral Display, as well as the always popular plant markets.

“The Buderim community has always had an affinity with gardening, and the Festival attracts visitors from around the state,” Mr Lyons said.

“The Open Gardens includes six very different but all beautiful gardens that showcase the diversity in size and style of gardening in our area.”

The Buderim Garden Festival program runs from Friday 13th October to Sunday 15th October and includes:

  • Twilight Plant Market, outside on the green at Buderim War Memorial Hall (corner of Main and Church Streets, Buderim), on Friday from 3-7pm. This will include a sausage sizzle and coffee & cakes available from the adjacent Craft Cottage.
