Orchid House afternoon sessions closed until February
Published: 06 Dec 2021
The Ken Burgess Orchid House will be closed during afternoons from Tuesday, December 7, due to low attendance numbers.
Mayor Greg Williamson said the hot weather was most likely discouraging residents from attending the afternoon viewing sessions, which run from 2pm to 3pm on weekdays.
“In the last two weeks we have had only one person come through the Ken Burgess Orchid House during our afternoon sessions,” he said.
“As a result, we have made the decision to put the afternoon viewing sessions on hold until Tuesday, February 1, 2022.
“The Orchid House will remain open for the morning sessions from 10am to 11am for anyone who wants to visit the facility to see what orchids are on display.”
The Ken Burgess Orchid House is located within Queens Park and is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 11am, and Sunday from 10am to 2pm. Entry is free.
Over the Christmas break the Ken Burgess Orchid House will be closed from Monday, December 20, reopening on January 11 from 10am to 11am.
