The Whangarei Camellia Show is usually the earliest Camellia show in New Zealand each year, because our region enjoys a milder climate. Local enthusiasts select their best-looking blooms and arrange them on tables to be judged, and thereafter admired by the public. A warm invitation is extended to all gardeners and admirers of Nature's beauty to come along and see for themselves, from 10.00am on Saturday 7 August. A raffle with nice prizes will operate in the Exhibition Hall. A gold coin donation to assist the local Camellia Society with expenses may be asked for.
