In 2017 visitors to the Tesselaar Tulip Farm in Monbulk Road, Silvan will be treated to the sight of almost a million blooms made up of more than 130 varieties of Tulip bathing the 10 Hectare (25 Acre) property in a stunning carpet of colour.

But Tesselaar's Tulip Festival is way, way more than a flower show it's a spectacular pageant of live entertainment, fun, food and themed events staged over 26-days in Silvan a beautiful corner of the fabulous Dandenong Ranges.
