Tulip Time Bowral is one of Australia’s oldest and best loved floral festivals

Tulip Time, now in its 59th continuous year, is one of Australia’s oldest and best loved floral festivals, attracting tens of thousands of visitors. Corbett Gardens, the centrepiece of the Festival is mass-planted with over 75,000 tulip bulbs and 15,000 annuals, in a spectacular Springtime display. Additionally there are another 40,000 tulips planted across the Shire, to create a picturesque vista.

Overall a celebration of stunning tulip displays, entertainment, special events and premier private gardens, so essentially there’s something on offer for both young and the young at heart!
