Spirit of Place: Tesselaar Tulip Festival (Part 1 of 3)


Every spring for 4 weeks the Tesselaar Tulip Festival happens in Silvan (country Victoria, Australia).

This year I went during the Dutch Weekend (I mean they are known for their tulips no).  They had transformed the tulip farm into a mini-Holland with food, costumes, folk dancing, barrel organ music, market stalls, windmills, games and historical displays.  There was also sculptures among the tulips from artists around the country.  The festival runs for two more weeks and for more information see here: http://www.tulipfestival.com.au

These were my favourite tulips which I remember the name of:


The “precocious” 


The “salvo” 12032024_10154364817194762_6106948914409796382_n

The “high roller”
