Tesselaar Tulip Festival &
High Tea at Coombe Yarra Valley
Wednesday, 6 October
At the Tesselaar Tulip Festival we will come across a variety of tulip species from all over the world and explore over half a million tulips. This unique festival is held at the Tulip Nursery in Silvan nestled within the Dandenong Ranges. Apart from the wonderful flower display, this festival also showcases live entertainment, a multicultural food exhibition and a sculpture display.
The festival is home to over 40 nurseries and plant growers where you can shop for a huge range of plants, both large and small and gather information from their resident experts with many gardening talks and demonstrations whilst gathering inspiration for your own garden.
The festival also features a number of cultural events, music shows, authentic food, folk dance shows and a number of entertainment programs and activities. Sample an assorted variety of regional food and wine while enjoying an array of music and dance shows.
There will be plenty of free time at the Tulip Festival before we visit the Coombe Yarra Valley Estate for a guided walking garden tour.
Once the home of world-famous opera singer Dame Nellie Melba, Coombe Yarra Valley is a unique gourmet and cultural destination. Situated among seven acres of stunning gardens, visitors are treated to a world-class experience featuring award-winning Coombe Farm wines, against a historic, picturesque backdrop.
Our high tea Includes a selection of elegant finger sandwiches; freshly baked scones with house made jams and clotted cream; and a selection of cakes and desserts served alongside free-flowing Coombe Sparkling NV.
