Immerse your senses the 23rd annual Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show, returning Wednesday 21–Sunday 25 March 2018.

The Southern Hemisphere’s largest and most loved horticultural event, the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show, returns to the heritage listed Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens in March 2018.

The five day Show attracts a cross-section of floral fanatics and gardening enthusiasts, from DIY and renovation buffs, to families exploring the country’s most creative Cubby Houses, after work crowds flocking to the one-off Gardens by Twilight evening, and emerging designers drawing inspiration from the nation’s foremost floral talent.

A bevy of international talent will headline the highly anticipated 2018 Show Garden line up, with celebrated designers from Japan and China already confirmed—and more big names to be announced shortly.

A series of smaller, more intimate gardens will be showcased with the Landscape Victoria Boutique Gardens Competition, as five leading designers create boutique garden environments.

The Royal Exhibition Building will be an explosion of colour and scent, with programming including the RMIT floral fashion competition, design installations from Australia’s foremost floral artists, live student design competitions, daily floral workshops, a brand new bridal exhibit and countless horticultural and floristry industry experts giving insightful demonstrations and Q&A sessions on the Main Stage daily.

The hugely popular Gardens by Twilight feature will return for one night only on Friday 23 March, inviting visitors to soak in the surrounds of the Show under the disappearing light with a glass of sparkling in hand.

Lavish feasting of the senses continues with bespoke floral inspired sessions of High Tea running daily—visitors are urged to book in quickly as seating are in high demand.

Outdoors, The Diggers Club will create an artful, edible garden arena and heirloom tasting station, and children of all ages are set to be awestruck by the Kids Under Cover Cubby House Challenge, which sees the most creative and interactive children’s play spaces come to life all in the name of charity.

The 2018 Show is shaping up to be its best yet, with more floral features, experts and unmissable botanical experiences to be announced next year.

Tickets are now on sale to the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show via the website.
