Our Gardens is the quarterly magazine of the Garden Clubs of Australia Inc and each issue features articles by well-known garden writers and regular contributors on plant cultivation, garden history, flower arranging, book reviews and horticultural events. The magazine is available to members of affiliated clubs through their own club secretary but is also available by direct subscription. Enquiries are welcome from potential advertisers of products of interest to gardeners or flower arrangers etc.
The website provides information about Garden Clubs of Australia including a list of all affiliated member clubs. Seasonal Tips are provided on a regular basis, and the “Diary Dates” page details coming events. The “Links” page lists interesting sites to visit, and the “Sales” page provides a list of items that may be purchased through the GCA. The website is updated at least weekly by the GCA webmaster. If you want something on your club highlighted send in a few images and/or a tale or two about what your club’s up to these days. It is a great chance to see what others are doing in our gardening world.
Shire Councils, Clubs and other organisations that hold garden or flower competitions may obtain information from the GCA judges list including names of available judges, by contacting the Judges Registrar. There are over 50 judges and convenors from judging associations listed, giving competition organisers a range of skills and qualifications to choose from. Affilated clubs can obtain their own complete list of Registered Judges.

Judges Courses are arranged periodically through the GCA to train potential garden judges from members of Affiliated clubs.

Every two years (in the odd years) the GCA holds a Convention at a different location in Australia. The Convention runs for about 5 days and includes the GCA AGM for that year. The Convention provides an opportunity for members of affiliated clubs and their friends and families to enjoy socialising and visiting many interesting attractions at the location. Affiliated clubs can tender to organise a Convention and will receive complete support from the GCA. For details and enquiries contact the GCA Secretary.
