Great Aussie Backyard
It’s everything you’ve ever wanted to know about gardening. There’s inspiration, garden tips and products and heaps of green-fingered advice.
Centerpiece of The Great Aussie Backyard is the TAFE NSW Landscaping Challenge, a showcase of the next generation of landscapers. The theme this year’s displays is ‘Small Spaces, Big Ideas’ and you’d be amazed by what you can do in a limited space.
Native birds and animals bring a special presence to a garden. There’s nothing like a pair of lorikeets feeding on Grevillea flowers, and the Bushcare people can show you how to conserve and restore habitat for native flora and fauna.
Be sure to take the kids to Little Diggers for a play in the sandpit and the cubby house, and they’ll get to plant a seed to take home and watch it grow.
And don’t miss Australian Wildlife Displays, although you might not want to take home any of the critters on display.
Feeling hungry? You’re right next to the Show’s Graze Alfresco Dining, packed with wonderful flavours from around the world.
Come along and see our Pizza Garden in the Great Aussie Backyard. Each slice will be planted up with a different herb or vegetable suitable for your pizza topping. You can see how easy it is to grow your own Pizza Garden at home. The kids can then plant some oregano at the Little Diggers area to take home to grow.
