It’s Yates Springtime Tulip Festival
Araluen Botanic Park is home to the annual It’s Yates Springtime Tulip Festival. From August 19th to the end of September the park will boast 120,000 tulips and various spring blooms planted by our gardeners and hundreds of volunteers over May and June. Every year Araluen welcomes thousands through the gates to marvel at a kaleidoscope of colours. With countless opportunities for the perfect selfie or for a family day out, the spring festival is for everyone! Food and entertainment will be present throughout the spring festival, with various food and drink options available. Including grab-and-go options from the Roundhouse Café, and seated food and drink at the iconic Chalet Healy Café. Children’s entertainment will be provided including face painting, with the added opportunity to have a go using our Augmented Reality filters! Watch in wonder as the children enter a digital world before your eyes, chasing fairies and catching frogs. The popular train will also return on weekends to take children and adults alike around the park to marvel at tulips and other blooms. Purchase a ticket and hop on board outside the Chalet Healy Café!
