Christmas in July Bus Trip : Wednesday July 14 2021

Karen O'Connor: Tours Co-ordinator Report:
We had lovely weather for the bus trip.
The Steps nursery had a good range of plants and plenty of decorative pots which were different to other nurseries.
Their cafe provided a delicious morning tea for everyone.
The Christmas in July lunch was excellent, very good size meals and desserts.
Some of us looked around Maleny while others went to the Landcare nursery.
Our bus driver Paul looked after us and got us safely there and back.
I hope more of the garden club members will be able to join us next time as it's a great day out with friends.
If you aren't sure about coming along please talk to anyone who came along.

Bankfoot House and Steve Floods garden  : Wednesday April 21   :  Cost $35

Co-Ordinator Karen O'Connor's Bus Trip report

We had lovely weather for our bus trip to Bankfoot House. It was a fascinating place and brought back lots of memories and people had stories to tell of the good old days! The house has been well looked after and is well worth a visit for anyone who hasn't been there.

Lunch at the Tavern was delicious and well organised by the staff there.

Stephen Floods garden / nursery had some very unusual plants with more appearing around each corner as we wandered around.

It was a good chance to make friends with new members and have a chat along the way.


The next trip will be the Christmas in July trip, date yet to be confirmed, on a Wednesday in July after the garden club meeting.

The plan is to to go Maleny Hotel for lunch, along the way we will visit Steps nursery at Caloundra and after lunch we plan to visit the wholesale nursery at Reeseville which is run by The Shaws who own the Forest Heart Eco nursery at Maleny.

Please register your interest with Karen and Doreen at a meeting or via email.    Karen Ph: 0414 608 893 or karenocon2020@gmail.com

It is BYO everything…We are meeting at the toilets where there is plenty of parking, on Coongarra Esplanade, Wurtulla.

Spring bus trip, Wednesday September 18th 2019 - Co-ordinator Karen reports.

The regular group of bus trippers enjoyed perfect weather again for our trip to the organic rose farm at Eudlo.

We had a lovely picnic lunch at Maroochy Botanic Gardens then Caz gave us a tour of her rose farm.

She has been working hard through the drought and the roses look strong and healthy from her efforts. Lots of photos were taken of the lovely blooms. There were also other bee attracting flowers and several bee hives. We all tried the rose syrup, rose honey and edible flowers.

Our amazing driver Paul from Wests delivered us safely along some tricky sections!

This was the last bus trip for the year and we hope more people can join us next year.
