Thousands flock to plant fair
THOUSANDS braved the showers and occasional heavy downpour to make the trek to Bellingen on Saturday for the Autumn Plant Fair.
And despite talk that there were fewer stands, there was still a bargain to be had as garden lovers sought out some superb species.
The fair opened at 8am and by 2pm there was little left as Coffs Coast reptile man Steve McEwen wrapped up his final show of the day.
“The rain stayed away long enough for everyone to get a bargain and enjoy the day,” said Coffs Harbour councillor Mark Graham, who enjoyed explaining to the crowds about frog habitats in the garden.
