HOW TO GET THERE
Free Shuttle Bus from Nambour Train Station
The Garden Expo will run a free shuttle bus from approximately 8:00am daily from the Nambour Train Station. A specially set up “Expo Bus Stop” will be located outside the entrance to the station. This service is free! The Expo bus will drop you off at the main Nambour Showgrounds entrance gate and will depart from this same point for your return journey.

Watch out for the lit signs that say GARDEN EXPO Traffic – next exit.
The gates do not open before 8.00am and cars queing on the road will be waved on by police.
We ask for your assistance and patience to avoid traffic hold ups.
Travelling by Bus
If you are travelling by a Sunbus service to Nambour there are a few alternatives for you to consider. If you disembark at Nambour Station you can catch the free Garden Expo Shuttle Bus to the Showgrounds. You may also wish to disembark at the Badminton Hall bus stop which is located directly in front of the Nambour Showgrounds. A short walk down the hill towards the High School will bring you to the main entrance gates at the showgrounds.
