Welcome to Kunara Garden Centre

You’ll find us at the eastern end of the Kunara Organic Marketplace complex, sharing our entrance and space with Kunara Organic Café. A match made in heaven. 

Kunara Organic Garden Centre Staff Tending To FlowersInvitingly spacious and light-filled, meander through the indoor part of our Garden Centre offering an eclectic range of gifts, artwork, locally crafted products and homewares, set amongst the living green of seasonal organic herbs, seedlings and decoratively attractive mature plants. While browsing, be seduced by the aromas and energy of the Sunshine Coast’s favourite Organic Café. Something to be savoured and enjoyed a little later.

On your way to the outdoor area of Kunara Garden Centre, you’ll find an extensive range of organic fertilisers and plant protection products before entering our ‘Garden of Eden’.
