Tulip Time 2019
Wander through more than 75,000 tulips at this flower festival in the Southern Highlands.
The event that floods Instagram feeds with thousands of vibrant flowers has returned to the Southern Highlands. Now in its 59th year, the annual Tulip Time festival features over 75,000 tulips planted throughout Bowral's Corbett Gardens and the surrounding Shire.
If the stunning sight of a tens of thousands of the bulbous flowers isn't quite enough for you, you'll be happy to know there's heaps of stuff happening at the garden throughout the two weeks, which is located a 90-minute drive southwest of Sydney. Expect live music, as well as a food-filled festival marketplace, with this year's event taking place between Tuesday, September 24 and Monday, October 7
If you're fond of Mary Poppins — and given that Australia now has a museum dedicated to the character, it seems plenty of folks are — you'll also be in luck. Author PL Travers spent some of her childhood in Bowral, so, with 2019 marking 85 years since the magical nanny made her first appearance on the page, Tulip Time is celebrating the occasion as well.
