Local Orchid growers will show off their prized possessions this weekend, even after they took a hard hit in the February floods.
The 2019 Winter Orchid Show is happening from today until Sunday, with plenty of colourful blossoms on display.
Vice-president of the Winter Orchid Show Robyn Dundas said that the floods actually played a positive part in making the orchids even better than last year.
It’s believed the heavy rain falls were able to flush out old nutrients from the orchids and give them a fresh start.
A lot of effort has gone into maintaining the orchids and you’ll be able to see that at the Townsville Orchid Society in Kirwan for a $2 entry fee.
The show is open now and will finish Sunday at 2pm.
Friday: 9 am-5 pm
Saturday: 9 am-5 pm
Sunday: 9 am-2 pm
