If you're all about thinking green, living in a more eco-conscious way and doing your utmost for the planet — as we all should be — then you likely already know about Brisbane's Green Heart Fair. This event regularly takes over a leafy public space to celebrate sustainability, all by giving away plants, teaching attendees about relevant topics and serving up plant-based food truck dishes.

For 2024, mark 9am–3pm on Sunday, May 26 in your diary, with all of the above is on the agenda once again. Also part of the fair, which'll be settling into the 64-hectare expanse that is Victoria Park / Barrambin in Herston: markets selling pre-loved threads, wildlife displays, taking test rides in electric vehicles, and learning more about sustainability and gardening (plus other related subjects).

If adding some greenery to your yard has particularly piqued your interest, there'll be native plants on offer — all for free. They're available on a first-come, first-served basis, so arriving early is recommended.

And, the fair also spans live tunes, plus activities for kids. This time around, the latter includes a Bluey show — for real life.
