Event Director, Marcus Gale commented that the calibre of exhibitions this year was second to none, with some winning displays three years in the making.

“We are floored by the level of skill, imagination and creativity presented across all garden and floral categories this year. Many designers have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to turn creations that captivated their imagination during lockdown into a reality, so it’s a thrill to see them all come to fruition. Championing themes from sustainability to accessibility and inclusivity, they need to be seen to be believed,” continued Gale.

“This year, it was extra special to engage 2022 Australian of the Year Dylan Alcott to present the first Celebrity Show Garden in collaboration Vivid Design thanks to the generous support of Visit Victoria,” said Gale.
