Catch the spring blooms at this famous tulip festival in regional Victoria
The Tesselaar Tulip Festival takes over Silvan’s Tulip Farm during September and October and brings almost a million tulips in bloom to 25 acres of farmland in the Dandenong Ranges.
Located an hour away from Melbourne, this tulip festival turns regional Victoria into a mini version of the Netherlands with tulip bulbs flowering in the majestic spring sunshine. While the tulips are undoubtedly the stars of the show, the festival also features live entertainment, market stalls, food offerings and themed weekend celebrations including the Turkish, Irish and Dutch weekends. This year's festival is themed around Tulips in Wonderland and will pay homage to Lewis Carroll's classic story.
