The Australian Garden Show Sydney offers families an opportunity to explore, learn and even get their hands dirty and will be the place to be on Father’s Day.
Mum and dad can meet their landscaping and handyman heroes, with Don Burke, Andrew Fisher-Tomlin, Matt Carroll and Christopher Slaughter on hand to talk about their area of expertise and give DIY tips for jobs at home.
