For this 2022 edition (Wednesday, July 6 to Sunday, July 10), the fair will take up residence at the newly renovated Cairns Convention Center, while several satellite events and exhibitions will be held at various venues throughout the city. The fair, overseen by Janina Harding since 2015, returns in the flesh for the first time in two years, after two hugely successful online editions. On offer: 55 stands, a wide range of artworks, art workshops and demonstrations, discussions with experts, and the closing ceremony and People's Choice Award on Sunday, July 10. This year's theme, "Masters of Country," celebrates native plants.
