Spring clean your mind and body at the Wildflower Festival at the Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne on Sunday 9 October.

This year’s annual Wildflower Festival will make the most of getting people outdoors and into the Australian Garden for many different activities designed to lighten the body and soul.  From yoga among the wildflowers through to bushwalks, photography and botanical art, there is something for everyone to get involved in and enjoy.

Best of all is the chance to enjoy the eruption of colour of wildflowers throughout the bushland and in the Australian Garden, inspiration for the recent gold medal award-winning Australian Garden Show Garden at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.  Winning gold at Chelsea is seen as the pinnacle of excellence for landscape design and horticultural display. Over 150,000 people saw the show garden in London this year.

Among the spring wildflower display are the Circus Triggerplant (Stylidium bulbiferum), a dazzling plant from Western Australia that is covered with a layer of many small pink flowers; as well as a spectacular flowering lily with no common name (Thelionema grande) which in spring produces gorgeous deep blue star-like flowers, which open over a number of weeks.

Wildflower Festival highlights:

  • Wildflower photography
  • Yoga among the wildflowers
  • Fabulously addicted to massage

  • Botanical Illustrators
