Botanical Bazaar is a community gardening and sustainable living event on the Gold Coast. What sets us apart is a unique blend of quality education, entertainment, and marketplace, all set in a charming country setting.

Botanical Bazaar also set new standards in event waste management in 2023, with only 7% of waste generated ending up in landfill. All packaging and utensils had to be 100% compostable, and single-use plastic was banned. Patrons were encouraged to bring water bottles and Keep-it coffee cups.

Botanical Bazaar is held on the first weekend of August each year at Nerang Country Paradise Parklands, 231 Beaudesert Nerang Rd, Nerang QLD 4211.

Yes, there is plenty of on-site parking accessible via 74 Billabirra Crescent, Nerang – just follow the signs. Parking over the weekend is managed by volunteers from the Gold Coast Volunteer Coast Guard for a donation of $5 per vehicle. Car-pooling encouraged. We have reserved a number of disabled parking places close to entry for pre-purchase
