Tip-Toe through the Tulips
Head to the historic City of Bendigo from 14 September to 13 October 2019, where more than 30,000 beautiful tulips are opening up to welcome spring.

The colourful and much loved Bendigo Annual Tulip Display along Pall Mall and Conservatory Garden features tulips in an assortment of colours, sizes and different blooming times.

The City of Greater Bendigo's Park and Natural Reserves team do a fantastic job each year, attracting thousands of visitors to see the wonderful display. During this time, team members will be on hand giving talks and sharing their techniques and wisdom on how to grow your own tulips at home.

Don't forget to take a few photos whilst you're admiring the tulips and share it on social media. Enter the BendigoTulips photo competition by simply tagging #BendigoTulips and #ExploreBendigo on Instagram.

Tulips have been cultivated for centuries and in the 1630s, one bulb was said to be worth a small fortune. In fact, in the Netherlands, or Holland as it was then called, referred to it as 'Tulip Mania.' with one bulb worth more than a horse and carriage.

Tulips come in a wide range of shapes and colours. From the traditional goblet shape, to the lily-shaped and those with fringed and feathery edges and a multitude of bright colours.

Feeling inspired to grow your own? Tulip bulbs should be planted at the start of autumn or early winter. Plant them in a good, rich, 'composty' soil, add some fertiliser and you'll have a wonderful show of tulips come springtime.

I had no idea Bendigo had its own tulip festival. What a great setting for these traditional flowers.
