Spring is just around the corner, which means it is time for nature lovers to head out to the great outdoors.

This year there is a range of activities suitable for people of all ages that are on across our island state.

But to mark the change in season, there is often no better place to go than one of the many gardens that feature in this year's Blooming Tasmania.

Although only small in comparison to the rest of Australia, the island state enjoys some of the country's most plant-friendly climates.

It also has the advantage of four distinct seasons, fertile soil, clean rivers and waterways, as well as varied landscape that can change from rugged mountains to coastal plains in the blink of an eye.

This means that along with seeing your more typical Australian flowering plants and trees, you can also catch a glimpse of thick rainforests, European-inspired gardens and unique coastal vegetation.

To make planning your visit of Tasmania's unique garden attractions, you can download the Great Days Out guide from the Blooming Tasmania website.

Other great events to fill up your September calendar include the Daffodil, Camellia and Floral Art Show (September 7-8), as well as the Launceston Horticultural Society Daffodil and Camellia Show (September 15-16).

Extending from September through to October is the Katandra Garden and Bulb Farm Daffodil display (September 23 – October 7), Colours of Wynyard (September 23 – October 14) and the Table Cape Tulip Farm Open Days (September 24 – October 19).

Given that spring – and especially October – is tulip season in Tasmania, you might want to make a beeline for as many showings of this bulbous plant as possible and put Bloomin' Tulips (October 14) in your diary.
