Where Can I Find Bonsai For Sale in Brisbane?

If you’re wondering where to find the best selection of bonsai for sale in Brisbane, we have a surprise for you. It’s not in your local cater-for-everything garden nursery. And it’s not even in the biggest and best nurseries in Brisbane (such as Eden Gardens Carseldine).

One of the best places to buy a bonsai tree or bonsai plant is actually at the hidden Bonsai Northside Nursery in Morayfield!

Bonsai Northside Nursery

The owner, Tess Simpson, has been growing Bonsais with a passion since the 1980s. She opened Bonsai Northside in 2002 and her website is adorned with photos from her travels around the world to meet some of the masters of Bonsai art. Tess runs monthly workshops to impart her knowledge with anyone keen to learn more about this highly respected ancient craft. (And no, she did not learn bonsai from Mr Miyagi or Daniel son from The Karate Kid.)

So whether you’re driving north from Brisbane, or south from the Sunshine Coast, it’s definitely worth calling in to Morayfield to see Tess if you’re looking for a bonsai tree or bonsai plant.

And if you’ve never called in to Keith Urban’s Caboolture, it’s just up the road from Morayfield and is worth a detour with these 6 Things To See in Caboolture. Enjoy!

    Hi, my name is Dennis Moore. I’m chasing pre-bonsai, preferably in the juniper squamata range. Up here in townsville, there isn’t a lot to choose from, unless Bunnings gets some in. Any help as to what North Queensland has to offer would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Dennis, Unfortunately we don’t have any North QLD bonsai contacts for you. All the best in finding your bonsai!

    Hi Dennis
    Have you checked out bonsaishop.com.au?
    They have all sorts of bonsai and you should be able to get it shipped.
