KaBloom Festival of Flowers - Tesselaar - Info - Melbourne

Celebrate the carnival of colour at Tesselaar’s new KaBloom - Festival of Flowers from March 30th to April 15th 2018. Held on Tesselaar’s flower farm in the magical Dandenong Ranges, KaBloom will be an explosion of colour in nature, with waves of over 1.2 million flowers in bloom across five acres of garden. Wow that's a lot of flowers for the kids to count - haha!

Run over two weeks, the Family Fun Days (3-6 April and 9-13 April) kick off with daily shows from The Mik Maks, Bethany Fisher and Full Circle Drumming Workshops (first week) and The Kazoos, Trash Test Dummies and Ruccis Circus School (second week). Treasure hunts, petting zoo and giant garden games will keep the little ones entertained all day.

KaBloom also brings colour to a new level during Colourific Weekend (14-15 April). Browse the annual Garden & Plant Expo and enjoy live entertainment from Fused and Bollywood dancers The Naach Box. If that’s too tame you can join in on our Colour War, but make sure you wear white for maximum impact!
