Celebrate Spring at Tulip Top Gardens
Just over the border into NSW, 20 minutes from Canberra's CBD, is the small rural town of Sutton with a population of less than 200 people. During Floriade however, Canberrans and tourists flock to the area to experience the month-long Garden Festival at Tulip Top Gardens.

The property includes ten acres of tulips, daffodils and spring flowers in spectacular bloom to wander through and enjoy. Blossom trees line the path through the property up to a 70 metre viewing platform to look over this picturesque and enchanting setting.

With a tinkling waterfall and classical music playing softly in their hidden valley, Tulip Top Garden Festival is a place to relax and appreciate the beauty of nature.
