The Tesselaar Tulip Festival began in 1954 and has since grown to become one of Victoria's most iconic tourist attractions, showcasing the breathtaking beauty of over a million spring flowers in bloom. The fields burst into colour each September and include over 120 different varieties of tulips alone.
This four week family festival hosts various themed days and weekends including Turkish, Dutch, Food, Wine, Jazz and Irish along with eight days packed with school holiday fun for the kids.
