Nambour

Nestled between the hinterland and the beach, you will find small quirky shops and cafes dotting the street.

A visit will have you admiring the Big Pineapple and visiting with the animals at Wildlife HQ. There you will find a whole range of animals, from native koalas and kangaroos (which are always favourites) to exotic animals like red pandas, meerkats and Queensland’s only Asian sun bear, Maly.

Take a trip down memory lane and refuel at Rick’s Garage Bar in Palmwoods. The walls and ceiling are plastered with old school posters and classic memorabilia and out the front visitors will find the real deal – with vintage cars and bikes lining the street on any given day.

Held at Nambour Showgrounds, Queensland Garden Expo is a three day celebration of all things gardening. The event attracts over 40,000 green thumbs and novice gardeners from across Queensland and interstate, displaying over 360 exhibits including 55 nurseries, great food, entertainment and a range of free children's activities for a great day out for all the family.
