Be inspired: Camp amongst a ‘Flower and garden’ show that outshines all others at Girraween

‘It’s bloomin marvellous’, as Australian gardening guru, Peter Cundal, would say. You don’t need to fly to the UK for the Chelsea Flower Show or trek to Melbourne for the International Flower Show because, when it comes to wildflowers and rock landscaping, Girraween National Park outclasses them all.
