Returning: Gardening Australia

New presenters join the 34th season of ABC gardening show.

Gardening Australia returns for its 34th year featuring the whole team at the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria—plus newest presenters Tammy Huynh from Sydney and Hannah Moloney from Tasmania.

ABC is also teasing “a brand-new look” for the program with its opening titles.

In 2023, Gardening Australia welcomes Tammy Huynh to the team! Based in Western Sydney, Tammy joined us as a guest presenter in 2022 exploring some innovative and creative inner-city gardens and growing techniques. An accomplished gardener and writer with over a decade of industry experience, in 2021 Tammy was awarded the Australian Institute of Horticulture, Horticulturist of the Year. Tammy brings a fresh new perspective to the show, including her specialist knowledge of houseplant horticulture.

We are also delighted to officially welcome our Tasmanian presenter, Hannah Moloney. Hannah is a professional garden designer and best-selling author and has appeared on Gardening Australia since her guest presenter series in 2019. Hannah will continue to share her amazing hilltop homestead and productive garden in Hobart, while offering sustainable design solutions and practical advice for growing and living. She will also explore the beautiful gardens of our Island State.
