Welcome to the 2021 Its Yates Springtime at Araluen featuring the popular Tulip Festival. Your enjoyment today is brought to you by a kaleidoscope of colour. Lots of colour! In the form of over 150,000 Tulips, and 36,000 Spring blooms. Internationally recognised Camellias, Azaleas, and Grand Magnolia trees are just some of the beautiful blooms you will spot against the backdrop of a stunning bushland setting.
Upon arrival you will instantly notice a sprawling bushland setting, complemented by our 1930’s heritage setting across the Park. We have been blooming for over 90 years for our visitors and take pride in restoration of the circa 1930’s style Log cabins, timber bridges, stone pathways and gazebos and etched plaques that tell our story for you, your family and friends to enjoy – we have a unique setting for that perfect selfie.
Be sure to stop by the newly refurbished cosy log cabin Chalet Healy Café to enjoy a delicious meal and refreshing beverage. For something lighter – try the patisserie menu offered at the Roundhouse, alternatively tempt your tastebuds with a selection of fabulous food vendors available throughout the Park Thursday to Sunday.
Budding young explorers can join in a modern treasure hunt and enter the Yates colouring competition.
There will also be guided walking tours, Cabernet and canvas art classes. There is something for everyone to enjoy at this year’s Tulip Festival. You don’t want to miss it! Switch off the Netflix and get back to nature!
Whether you’re a keen gardener, nature lover, adventure seeker, budding photographer, or hiker – today you have come to the right place. Welcome to Araluen Botanic Park – enjoy the memory making!
*The festival is scheduled to run from the 16th of August to the 3rd of October*
