Local Orchid growers will show off their prized possessions this weekend, even after they took a hard hit in the February floods, so get ready to buy all the pretties!
The 2019 Winter Orchid Show is happening from today until Sunday, with plenty of colourful blossoms on display that you can add to your collection.
Vice-president of the Winter Orchid Show Robyn Dundas said that the floods actually played a positive part in making the orchids even better than last year.
It’s believed the heavy rain falls were able to flush out old nutrients from the orchids and give them a fresh start.
A lot of effort has gone into maintaining the orchids and you’ll be able to see that at the Townsville Orchid Society in Kirwan for a $2 entry fee.
The show is open now and will finish Sunday at 2pm.
Friday: 9 am-5 pm
Saturday: 9 am-5 pm
Sunday: 9 am-2 pm
