Plant Lovers Fair at Kariong, NSW


Kariong Mountains High School, Festival Drive, Kariong.

Central Coast, NSW


Opening times:

Saturday 23 September 8am to 4pm 

Sunday 24 September 9am-3pm




Our Exhibitors are always specially chosen to offer ‘something different’ – rare, unusual and collectable plants not commonly available in Garden Centres. This does not make these plants difficult to grow! You will always find a great selection of interesting species more familiar to you that will be hard to resist and we are very pleased to host all our Exhibitors at the 2017 Plant Lovers Fair, many of whom are returning in 2017 after proving so very popular in previous years.
