The Japanese Sakura (Cherry Blossoms) only bloom once a year for about two weeks and are at their best from late August to the early September. Expect to see masses of soft pink sakura flowers in full bloom. It is really a spectacular sight!

Look out for the stunning peacocks at the festival!


To celebrate this annual attraction, Auburn City Council has created a fantastic Japanese cultural programme. This year, the Cherry Blossom Festival features not only cherry blossom, but also include the Japanese themed demonstrations such as Ikebana (flower arranging), Kendo (Martial Arts) and various musical performances. The Peacock Gallery activities include an art exhibition, origami workshops as well as food and drink stalls.

Very disappointing! There was not plenty of parking and even with disabled children we were unable to get a park within 4 blocks which meant we couldn't attend as my son is unable to walk on his walker for that amount of distance. Very distressing and poor outcome!
