So head down the garden path and get along to one of these floral favourites…

1. Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, QLD (20-29 September 2019)

With the title of the ‘Garden City’, it’s fitting that Toowoomba has an annual flower festival. Fast approaching its 70th birthday, the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers is a massive celebration of all things flora. And that's just the start. For 10 days, the city is buzzing as various venues host food and wine events, musical entertainment, fashion, train rides, and other fun finds that you wouldn't necessarily expect of a flower festival. Garden tours provide dedicated green thumbs the opportunity to witness a bunch of floral displays with ease.

2. Bright Spring Festival, VIC (26 October-5 November 2019)

The beautiful town of Bright is used to living up to its name year-round but in spring it truly blossoms. And the Bright Spring Festival celebrates this kaleidoscope of colour through a wide assortment of excellent events. There are fireworks, fetes, fairs, and foodie events; markets and art exhibitions, and, of course, plenty of gardens to admire. Better still, you can speak directly with gardening experts. Held for more than 25 years, the festival is not to be missed. 

3. Tesselaar Tulip Festival, Silvan, VIC (14 September-13 October 2019)

Come early September, the small Dandenong Ranges town of Silvan has a spring in its step as the fields come alive with colourful tulips. And not just a few of them but a staggering 500,000-plus tulips. Founded in 1954, the Tesselaar Tulip Festival also features market stalls and a wide offering of diverse food inspired by tastes across the globe. It’s backed by live entertainment, tractor rides, and various themed days that add to the festival’s rich appeal.

4. Renmark Rose Festival, SA (18-27 October 2019)

Roses are red, and all sorts of other colours. And as the Rose Capital of Australia, Renmark certainly demonstrates the diversity of this popular plant.

The Renmark Rose Festival features a jam-packed assortment of events spread across a host of venues and has plenty of open gardens that visitors can wander around.

5. Kings Park Festival, Perth, WA (1-30 September 2019)

You’d be hard pressed to find a better setting for a floral fest. With its sweeping views over the CBD, a visit to Kings Park is one of Perth’s best attractions at any stage. In September, it’s even more inviting as the Kings Park Festival showcases a remarkable display of wildflowers at a time when they are at their bloomin’ best. Free guided wildflower walks are fantastic for floral fanatics, and live music and family fun days ensure the festival, which dates more than half a century, has even more appeal.
