Party with petunias and watch a circus amongst the cleomes at Tesselaar's Kabloom Festival of Flowers — where millions of blooms will serve as a backdrop for daily circus performances, photoshoots for social media influencers and lunchtime picnics.

Running from Saturday, March 23–Sunday, April 21, the Dandenong Ranges festival will feature acres of colourful flowers and whimsical performances by Circus Oz.

The main circus will run each day for the duration of the festival, featuring magical woodland creatures and awe-inspiring stunts. Throughout the day, the fairies and sprites will have a variety of other acts, including tightrope walking over flowers, juggling, hula hooping and contortion.

Other festival attractions include food and market stalls — yes, including a flower market — for the adults. There are also a variety of activities for children's entertainment, including circus and drumming workshops, face painting, interactive storytelling sessions and garden games. On Easter long weekend, there will also be an Easter rabbit hunt where you search the fields for rabbits instead of eggs, and go in the running to win some prizes.

Visitors can also take a tractor train tour of the farm to view the flowers and learn more about how they are planted and cared for.

Some activities require prior registration. Tickets start at $23.50 for adults, $19.50 for concessions, and children under 16 can enter the event for free. You can also bring your pooch along with you as long as you keep them on a lead. Water bowls will be dotted around the grounds to keep them happy and hydrated.
