The north-west coast of Tasmania is a delightful place to visit at any time of year, but even more so during the Bloomin’ Tulips festival.
Coinciding with the spectacular spring colours of tulips in bloom and the vivid yellows of the acacia – Australia’s national floral emblem – the October 8 event is the focal point of the three-week Colours of Wynyard celebration that begins September 24.
Situated in a small town on the beautiful coastline, Bloomin’ Tulips will provide visitors with the opportunity to marvel at the sight of vast quantities of the flower in full bloom.
Table Cape will be home to the largest publicly-accessible area of tulips under cultivation in the southern hemisphere .
Some of the highlights of the day include cocktail drinking with Tulips@Twilight, local arts and crafts, musical performances and a sensational fireworks display over the Inglis River at night.
You can also enter the unusual tulip tossing championships or sit back and feast on some of the island’s fresh produce and delicacies.
Wynyard itself is an easy-to-walk flat area just ten minutes from quiet forest areas and one hour from the majestic mountains.
