Each year, Tesselaar Tulip Festival draws in visitors from Australia and internationally, to experience a dazzling display of over a million spring bulbs in bloom, including more than 900,000 tulips in every colour of the rainbow.

Attracting more than 100,000 people over four weeks, Tesselaar Tulip Festival has become one of Victoria's premier spring events. Visitors are free to wander through almost 5 hectares of fields and marvel at one of the most vibrant displays of floral beauty Victoria, if not Australia, has to offer.
