Tesselaar Tulip Festival

03 9737 7722

13 Sep - 7 Oct 2018

See almost a million tulips on display at the Tesselaar Tulip Festival, the colour is absolutely amazing.

In addition to the flowers there is live entertainment and market stalls daily, tractor rides, performances, souvenirs, games for all and much more. You can even see the biggest clog in the Southern Hemisphere.

Please note: the unusually cold start to spring has delayed the flowering of the tulips. But don’t despair, once there are a few warm weather days, it won’t be long until the tulips are in full bloom.

Visitors are encouraged to come and enjoy the fun and festivities of the Turkish Weekend and Over the Rainbow Week. For every ticket purchased during these themed days visitors receive a free pass to return at a later date to see the glory of the tulips.

Keep an eye on Tesselaar's website, Facebook and Instagram for regular updates.
