The annual Bush Christmas Exhibition is set to take place at Masonic Centre in Toowoomba, after 18 years of being the gift-giving heart of all things unique and handmade.

Celebrating the sensational talent of over 110 rural and remote artisans, the 10-day event boasts quality handmade gifts, stunning works of art and gourmet delights.

Bush Christmas was established in 1996, when a group of women in Western Queensland saw talent lying unnoticed in remote and rural areas.

The exhibition continues to be a wonderful success, with over 4,000 people attending and 15,000 works finding their way to Christmas trees all over the nation and overseas last year alone.


This year, it is open to the public between December 4 and December 13, with free admission, and is easily accessible for wheel chairs and prams.

Bush Christmas continually look for new talent with new products to exhibition, saying it provides an avenue to not only sell your work but also promote it to a much wider audience.

From artworks and ceramics to jewellery and books, home wares and textiles to gourmet delights and skin care products; ticking everyone on your Christmas list is easier than ever.
