Visitor Information

The Garden Expo Exhibitor’s Site Map and corresponding Stall Holders List is still being finalised for the 2018 Ipswich Home Gardener’s Expo. While there is going to be a few changes, the site map and most stall holders are expected to remain the same. Updates will be on-going as information becomes available.

Parking

Parking is available on Glebe Road and surrounding side streets near the Garden Expo. No on-site parking is available.

Parking at the Booval shopping Centre may be an option, as the distance isn’t too far from the event. Pick up and drop off zones are located at the entrances to the expo on Eileen and Green Streets.

The bus drop-off point is in Green Street (corner of Glebe Road) outside Shalom House.

Please note that all stall holders are required to park in the side streets to free up parking for the public nearer the expo.

Security, Access & Plant Crèche

The entire Garden Expo site is completely accessible for wheelchairs.

A ‘Plant Crèche’ is available on site (map reference 50) to look after purchased plants as you continue to shop, eat or listen to speakers etc. The cost of the Plant Crèche is a gold coin donation. When picking up your plants, there is also a plant pick-up location for cars outside the Plant Crèche on Glebe Road.
