Pick Your Own Sunflowers at Kalbar Sunflower Farm
Spend a day frolicking through a field of 80,000 sunflowers — and picking them.
Floral bursts of sunshine are blooming all across a farm in the Scenic Rim, and they're ready for you to wander through, take plenty of snaps and pick till your heart's content. We're talking about sunflowers, of course — the undeniably cheeriest of all flowers — which are currently on offer just under 90 minutes drive from Brisbane.
Exactly what a visit to Kalbar Sunflower Farm entails is rather obvious. Prepare to get frolicking — and picking — among 80,000 flowers. You'll need to pay $2 per sunflower on top of your $12.64 entry ticket, but you can nab as many as you like.
You'll also want to wear boots, and bring your own secateurs or scissors — and a bucket to take your flowers home in. You'll be on a farm, so be careful to look out for bees in the field as well. Other than that, you'll have some eye-catching Instagram photos and a bunch of golden flowers in no time.
Kalbar Sunflower Farm is opening to the public across three weekends: Saturday, October 23–Sunday, October 24, Saturday, October 30–Sunday, October 31 and Saturday, November 6–Sunday, November 7. Two sessions run daily, from 8.30am–12.30pm and 12.30–4.30pm.
And, if you'd like to do more than nab golden-hued flowers, look at them, walk among them and take photos of them, yoga sessions, car rides with grazing platters and picnic boxes are all on offer for an extra cost.
