About the City of Hobart Floral Shows

FREE Admission

The City of Hobart Floral Shows are a series of stunning spring and autumn shows presented by the Hobart Horticultural Society and the Tasmanian Orchid Society Inc. in conjunction with the City of Hobart.

Location

All four shows are held in the grand auditorium on the first floor of the Hobart Town Hall. Accessible parking is located close by with ramps into the main entrance of the Town Hall and elevator access from the Town Hall parking deck.

Refreshments

The Rotary Club of Salamanca offer delicious handmade Devonshire Teas and fresh sandwiches at each of the Floral Shows. Please note there will however be no refreshments available at the Orchid Show on Thursday 21 September.

Additional Offerings

The three Hobart Horticultural Society shows will also include bonsai displays, raffles, and stalls selling plants and cut flowers.

The Orchid Society show held late September will have orchids for sale.  

All four shows are attended by a wonderful and dedicated group of volunteers who are very glad for an opportunity to share their love and knowledge with any curious, amateur, budding or accomplished gardeners.
