Better Homes and Gardens is one of Australia’s most loved home improvement shows, helping Aussies transform their dwellings into places of fun and creativity. 

For two days starting Friday, September 16, the team from Better Homes and Gardens will be taking over Sydney OIympic Park, where they will give live talks, demonstrations on everything from home trends, desserts for dinner parties to creating the perfect herb garden. There’s even a kid’s activities centre where you can leave the young ones behind while you wonder off on your own adventures.

Hosting the event are television host Johanna Griggs and editor of Better Homes and Gardens magazine, Julia Zaetta. 

Joining them will be some of the biggest names in TV today including Dr Harry (who’ll be talking about alternative pets and the life of being a vet), celebrity chef ‘Fast’ Ed Halmagyi and four-time Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show (MIFGS) Gold medallist, Jason Hodges. 

There will be endless opportunities to learn inside tips, nifty tricks and plenty more ways to make your home the best on the block. Tickets to the event are available online, but spaces at some of the presentations will be limited so make sure you’re prepared ahead of schedule. 

Better Homes and Gardens Live will take place at the Sydney Showgrounds at Sydney Olympic Park for two days starting Friday, September 16.
