Instameet at Maleny Botanic Gardens and Birdworld

27 May, 2018

We're celebrating all things gardening in the lead up to the Queensland Garden Expo starting with an instameet at one of Australia's most exquisite gardens, Maleny Botanic Gardens & Birdworld in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Join Visit Sunshine Coast and Deep Love Picnics at Maleny Botanic Gardens and Birdworld on Sunday 27 May at 3pm for an instameet featuring spectacular views, exquisite gardens and sumptuous picnic fare and beverages to photograph.

Meander through one of Australia’s most beautiful gardens and be inspired by a panorama of waterfalls, ponds and colourful plantings, idyllic rainforest, and spectacular Glass House Mountains views.

Keen to practise your food photography skills? Be sure to visit the Deep Love Picnics plush alfresco set-ups. Head to the pink rotunda at the top of the gardens with its magnificent views of the Glass House Mountains and Sunshine Coast Hinterland, and then wander down to Willow Pond for another picnic set-up complete with a moored fishing trawler as a backdrop. Buderim Ginger will also supply some colourful beverages that will give your instagram feed a real pop of colour.

Meet at 3pm outside the teashop in the gardens where you’ll enjoy some close encounters with friendly native and exotic birds before continuing your garden explorations. Children are very welcome to attend. You're guaranteed a wonderful afternoon out and some stunning shots for your social media feed or family photo album.

Please wear comfortable walking shoes, bring a hat and sunscreen and some bottled water.
