This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Welcome to the 2023 Bio·R Planting Festival, held at Frahns Farm for the 8th consecutive year. This year, we're aiming to reconstruct another 20 hectares of wildlife habitat with 40,000 seedlings to be planted. So, we need your help!

Ticket prices

This year, we have decided to charge a $10 registration fee to partially cover the costs of catering, which is $25 per person. This will help us reduce food wastage and give our caterers a more accurate indication of numbers each day.

If you wish to cover the full cost of catering, you can choose to register with the $25 ticket option.

We thank you for your support and understanding.


We will be providing lunch and afternoon tea, along with tea, coffee and water. 

Please remember to bring your own plate, bowl, mug and utensils.

We have a change in location this year. Please note new location (see location to the right (desktop) or above (mobile).
