Yea Garden Expo

21 to 22 Sep 2024

The township of Yea is just over an hour’s drive from Melbourne. The Yea Rotary Club has organised a Garden Expo. This is just the time of year when interested gardeners are busy preparing their gardens for spring colour. The Expo provides an opportunity to view a host of garden-related products at the Yea Saleyards site (Flat Lead Road), just off the Yea – Whittlesea Road, a few kilometres on the south side of Yea. The site is flat, sealed and easily accessible for everyone. Dogs are permitted provided on a leash.

Why not take advantage of the $10 entry fee, free parking, a wide range of goods and services, and a plentiful supply of food and drinks, much of it homemade and come and visit. Over 70 vendors will be on site with exhibits ranging from bulbs, seeds, seedlings, flowering plants and trees to garden tools and equipment, garden art and ornaments, compost, fertilisers and more. Check out The Australian made ride on, articulated tipping barrow which has always been a big hit with visitors as are the quirky horseshoe garden sculptures, produced by local Darryl Callander and which can be made to order.
