Brisbane International Garden Show will be held over 4 days at Pine Rivers Park, Strathpine on 8-9-10-11 October 2015. This event will showcase the unique Queensland gardening style and will bring together landscape gardening displays for both large and smaller gardens, gardening experts delivering talks and workshops and of course dozens of nurseries and gardening products displaying all the best of spring gardening plants and products. Brisbane International Garden Show will be organised by the same team that organise the very successful and long running Queensland Garden Expo at Nambour in July. 2015 promises to be a great year for gardeners with two fantastic, unique gardening events.

Red Deer

3 Oct to 4 Oct  -  291 Foggs Road, Mt Samson, QLD

Forget the long festival queues to purchase overpriced mid-strength drinks, and lining up for an hour to go to the toilet? Not on our watch! The big festival experience is on borrowed time.

Red Deer is a festival for now; an intimate, boutique, relaxed event like no other Brisbane has ever had. Here you can enjoy quality music in an absolutely amazing setting, while sipping on your bevvie of choice out of your eskie, sitting on your BYO couch and soaking up the atmosphere that is regarded by many as Brisbane’s best BYO music and camping festival.

Making its debut in 2010, this high energy, BYO music and arts festival is an independent, community driven event committed to offering local bands, artists and music lovers a fresh, honest and intimate alternative to other mainstream music festivals.

With humble roots and a modest beginning, Red Deer has grown to now play host to music lovers across the region enjoying 12 hours of music, arts, overnight camping, and celebration. Situated in a natural amphitheater beneath the pristine D’Aguilar range just outside of Brisbane, Red Deer Fest is one of a kind.

Cost:  -  Please visit the website for more details.
