Lecture Series

One of the hallmarks of the Redland International Orchid Festival is the weekend-long lecture series. Here, in the comfort of the air conditioned lecture room at the Fruit & Spice Park, you can learn how to grow that difficult species or how to control a pesky pest invasion. Speakers are hand picked from visiting growers and local academics.

You'll be surprised at what you can learn!
