With spring just round the corner, this means it's almost time to trip to through the tulips at the annual Tesselaar Tulip Festival.
Now in its 64th year, this jaw dropping event is a must see and do for all Melbourne families this spring.
If you've yet to visit the colourful spectacular in the Dandenong Ranges, then you must not miss out this year.
The Tesselaar Tulip Festival provides you and your children with the opportunity to run through fields of more than 25 acres of some 900,000 flowering tulips.
This well organised event not only provides a colourful backdrop for photographic family memories but there are also themed events offered throughout the season to entice visitors young and young-at-heart.
Relish in family-friendly activities, live entertainment, delicious food, beer and wine and market stalls every day.
Special themed events also happen throughout the festival, including:
Turkish Weekend 15-17 September
Over The Rainbow Week 18-21 September
Dutch Weekend 22-24 September
Children's Week 25 September-5 October
Food, Wine & Jazz Weekend 29 September-1 October
Irish Weekend 6-8 October
The Tesselaar Tulip Festival runs as follows:
When: 9am until 5pm daily. 14 September until 10 October, 2017
Where: The Tulip Farm, 357 Monbulk Rd, Silvan, VIC
Cost: Ticket prices start from $24 and children under 16 are FREE when accompanied by a paying adult.
Top Tip: Although the festival marks the start of spring in Victoria, be aware the fields can be muddy, so gum boots are recommended if you want to avoid the kids getting too messy!
