Tesselaar Tulip Festival

Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges

The Tesselaar Tulip Festival began in 1954 and has since grown to become one of Victoria’s most iconic tourist attractions. Set on a 25-acre working farm in the picturesque Dandenong Ranges, it offers a visually breathtaking sight over one million spring flowers in bloom. The fields burst into colour each September and include over 100 different varieties of tulips alone.

Visitors can walk among the tulips and envelop themselves in colour. This family festival hosts various themed days and weekends including Turkish, Dutch, Food, Wine, Jazz and Irish along with eight days packed with school holiday fun for the kids.

Tulips are the stars of the show but there is also live entertainment daily appropriate to each theme, market stalls, culinary delights from around the globe.

Enjoy the Dutch costumes, tractor rides, pick your own tulip patch, sculpture exhibit and more. Bring a picnic to enjoy in the gardens or indulge in local produce. This is a unique experience found nowhere else in Victoria.

The festival runs for just four weeks Mid-September to Mid-October.

Dogs on lead welcome. Free off street car and bus parking.
