Queensland Country Bank is pleased to announce its partnership with Nursery and Garden Industry Queensland as its exclusive Banking Partner and Presenting Partner Sponsor to Queensland Garden Expo 2023, held annually in Nambour.

Chances are if you live in Queensland and love gardening, you would have heard of Queensland’s Premier Gardening Event which has been held in early July for 38 years. The Queensland Garden Expo attracts over 38,000 visitors with 340 exhibitors over the course of three days from South East Queensland, the Sunshine Coast, and Regional Queensland. The event is widely recognised as the largest gardening event in Queensland.

“We are a member-owned bank with a distinct purpose of helping all Queenslanders live better lives through better finances, helping them to achieve their financial goals while giving back to the communities we operate in,” said Aaron Newman, Queensland Country Bank CEO.

“Queensland Country Bank is proud to be supporting the Queensland Garden Expo as it involves and connects with various community groups at the grass roots level, this added to the synergy of being a part of this event.

“Sponsorship of the Queensland Garden Expo was a natural fit for Queensland Country Bank as we expand our presence and footprint in South East Queensland.

“The South East region is an important part of our business with a lending office and branches in the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane City as well as Beaudesert, Virginia, and Ipswich.

“Community support and partnerships like the Queensland Garden Expo are at the centre of our business, as it further enables us to give back to the communities we serve.

“The Queensland Garden Expo is an exciting addition to our community partnerships and based on the success of the past Expos we look forward to being a part of it,” said Mr Newman.

Marion Beazley, Event Manager of Queensland Garden Expo added, "We are absolutely delighted to welcome Queensland Country Bank as our Presenting Partner Sponsor in 2023. 

“Our values of environmental awareness and protection and our connection to community strongly align with those of Queensland Country Bank and we look forward to working with their team."

So, what can visitors expect at the Queensland Garden Expo in July?

Besides Queensland Garden Expo delivering “more than you can see or do in one day”, planned visitors will be able to connect with Queensland Country Bank’s knowledgeable banking staff, have an opportunity to see its mascot Crackles in action at the Expo, and have a chance to win prizes over the course of three days.
