Take a Roadtrip for Good

New Trading Hours at Abundance

Abundance Garden Centre has joined social initiative Roadtrip For Good to inspire holiday-makers to visit our region. It’s more important than ever for people to visit regions impacted by bushfires and the extended drought. Your wonderful support and continued visits are welcomed and will help lift local economies. 

Abundance Garden Centre and Cafe is now open for new trading hours Wednesday to Friday 9.00am to 3.00pm and Saturday and Sunday 8.00am til 4.00pm. 

Due to the ongoing drought Abundance is now closed on Monday and Tuesday. 


Now open for business 5 days a week

“The Australian bushfires impacted the Mid North Coast in November and December. Coupled with the ongoing drought, summer business has been slower than usual. The Mid North Coast relies on tourism and we’re looking forward to welcoming visitors in 2020,” said business owner John Van Der Lay.

“Although we’ve reduced our trading hours we want to let people know we’re very much open for business – now five days a week. Our water recycling project was a large undertaking to support our wholesale production nursery. Abundance continues to grow and produce sensational plants despite the challenges of limited rainfall,” added John.

Many businesses are indirectly affected by the drought and bushfire season and it’s important for communities to band together. 

Destination Mid North Coast

The Mid North Coast made international headlines as stories of koala rescues went viral. The Port Macquarie Koala Hospital received an outpouring of support and is open as usual for visits from 8.00am to 4.30pm with feeding times at 8.00am and 3.00pm. 

Another favourite attraction for tourists, a short drive from Abundance is the Billabong Zoo which also has its own koala program. 

Behind the headlines we want people to know our picturesque region is a great destination for road trippers heading north and south. We look forward to welcoming visitors to enjoy a bite to eat and a relaxing wander through our retail garden centre.

Choose a Roadtrip For Good in 2020

With a passion for tourism and getting people off the beaten track, Roadtrip for Good uses the latest mapping technology to contribute to the bushfire relief cause in a different way.

The social initiative gives businesses in fire affected regions a platform to show they are open and ready for visitors.

“In addition to donating, I really wanted to encourage people back to these towns after the dust settles – to buy their coffee, eat their food, stay a night,” said founder Zoe Manderson.

Business owners can register their business via a link on the site, which adds them to Roadtrip for Good’s interactive map. Mid North Coast businesses are encouraged to jump online to sign up and show Australia we’re open for visitors in 2020 and beyond.
