Over the Rainbow at the Tesselaar Tulip Festival 2017

I needn’t even write about this one, I could just show you the photos and that would be enough to send you scrambling for your credit card to book a ticket! Driving into the car park, and getting a sneaky peek of the tulips through the trees, takes your breath away.

Then you go inside…….

This years theme at the Tesselaar Tulip Festival is Over The Rainbow- The Wizard of Oz, and The Wilsons of Oz weren’t going to miss out. I’m a bit emosh about tulips, I have always loved them; so much so that they were the only flower at our wedding; and that mixed with the “Oz” theme, was too much for this woman to bear!

This weekend it was ‘food, wine & jazz” weekend, so we picked a good one! Not only did we get to tip toe through the tulips, we got a tractor ride with a wonderful commentary about the history of the festival, and some delicious tasters too!

Tulips, tractors, tasters… You see what I mean!? Perfect!!!

There’s so much for you and the family to enjoy. There’s a treasure hunt, some beautiful little cubby houses, a great tree for climbing, ice creams, dutch delights, sculptures, clogs, bulbs, and most importantly acres of breath taking tulips for you to meander through.

Take a picnic, pack your camera, pick up your purse and walk down the Yellow Brick road to truly see the colours of the rainbow right there in the Dandenong Ranges… Not to be missed… by a soul!!!!
