Florists in Cairns are busy all year round presenting arrangements of Cairns' signature flower, the orchard. With the perfect weather conditions the orchard has blossomed throughout Cairns making it a popular place for florists. The North Queensland Orchard Society hosts an annual Mother’s Day flower show which showcases
the spectacular plants and flowers that are grown locally in hand designed arrangements and installations for tourists to witness. The beauty of flowers is appreciated throughout the state and florists are regularly required to create wreaths and arrangements for local events and occasions taking place in the city.
