The KaBloom Flower Festival is a new festival running over the Easter school holidays and celebrates nature's explosion of colour as five acres of garden come into bloom.

The Tesselaar Flower Farm is most famous for its annual Tulip Festival held in Spring, however, this means the Flower Farm is not open for the public to enjoy for the remainder of the year. As such, fourth-generation nurseryman, Paul Tesselaar said they had been looking for another way to share the farm during the year. "While the Tesselaar Tulip Festival is a wonderful event, it's only four weeks of the year," said Mr Tesselaar.

"KaBloom gives us another opportunity to invite people into our paddocks and interact with colour and nature. It also continues my family's strong tradition of sharing their passion for cultivating and growing plants that began over 60 years ago."

The KaBloom Festival will run from 30 March – 15 April and celebrate some 1.2 million flowers bloom into waves of colour over the hills.
