The Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show is held each year at the world heritage listed Royal Exhibition building and Carlton Gardens.
The ambiance of the gardens and the quality of the floral designers and landscape gardeners attracted make this event the stand out amongst similar events within Australia.
The 2013 edition will include:
- “Fresh by Jenny Craig”, a guide to healthy living and bringing the garden into your kitchen.
- The Disney Fairies Children’s Garden.
- “My Flowerhouse” floral design workshops for all the family.
- “Lindeman’s Open Garden”, an internatinoal award winning display of garden cooking demonstrations with celebrity chef Dominique Rizzo and gardening guru Meredith Kirton.
Tourism Victoria recognises the event as one of its ‘Hallmark’ events for the year. It is promoted heavily throughout Australia and overseas and draws an international audience. It joins with other hallmark events such as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Australian Grand Prix, the Melbourne Cup Carnival and the Australian Open Tennis, as a significant tourism draw card for our State.
It is Australia’s biggest flower and garden show.
