Supporting Bush Artisans

Over 100 of Queensland’s very best regional artists and hand crafters will showcase their talents at this year’s Bush Christmas Exhibition in Toowoomba, Queensland.

Held between November 27 and December 6, the exhibition offers a unique platform for regional artists, providores and creatives to showcase their talents and retail their handcrafted pieces.

Exhibition Director, Liz McClymont, advised that this year’s event would be particularly important in light of the ongoing drought situation facing regional farmers.

Said Liz, “It isn’t easy living on the land at the moment and our exhibitors show great resilience, creativity, dedication and often humour in the face of adversity. 

“Bush Christmas really is a celebration of not only the creative works and produce that our exhibitors craft but also their spirit and robust attitudes.”   

Liz advised that Bush Christmas continued to grow each year with the 2019 event predicted to be equally as successful as last year’s exhibition. 

Advised Liz “Our original intention was to bridge the gap between city and country and open more doors for regional artisans but with an increasing interest in handmade and bespoke items, the exhibition continues to grow in popularity year in and year out. 

“Shoppers to our exhibition love the fact that the products for sale are truly original.

“Bush Christmas really is an event like no other.  All products for sale are uniquely original and of an exceptionally high quality.”

A wide range of handcrafted items will be available for purchase at this year’s Bush Exhibition including artworks, garden sculptures, gourmet food, jewellery, fashion accessories, homewares, books and toys. 

In keeping with the event’s name, Christmas cakes, puddings and festive treats will also be available for purchase.  

The 2019 Bush Christmas Exhibition will be held between Wednesday November 27 and Friday December 6 at the Masonic Hall, 58 Neil St, Toowoomba.

The exhibition will be open from 9am to 6pm daily. Admission is free.
