The Bellinger Valley Orchid Society will hold its annual orchid show on Saturday, August 18 at the Uniting Church Hall in Bellingen – and this year marks the 23rd annual event. 

Tracey Suter from the group said the orchid show never fails to impress, offering a beautiful array of locally grown orchids.

From 9am to 4pm, visitors and exhibitors come from up and down the Mid North Coast to marvel at these wonderful flowers.

Cymbidiums and paphiopedilum to phalaenopsis and Australian natives will be on display.

The orchid judges spend hours checking the plant quality, shape of flower size of flower and type of spray to find the perfect one to take the grand champion ribbon.

So, come and enjoy a snack while sitting and admiring beautiful orchids from the Mid North Coast.
