The Cure Brain Cancer Foundation is recognised as the peak awareness, advocacy and fundraising
organisation for brain cancer in Australia. Partnering with the research and brain cancer communities,
they’re in the unique position of developing a national agenda as well as influencing the global agenda for
brain cancer research and funding more than $14million worth of research projects since inception.
When considering the messaging and theming for the 2016 Festival it was taken into consideration
that brain cancer is an insidious disease, killing more children in Australia than any other disease.
Therefore in 2016 there will be an extensive program of events and activities under pinned
by the key Festival messaging of ‘every adventure requires a first step’ to align with the storybook
animations of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ being incorporated into the theming and garden bed designs.
The Festivals central color theme will be purple with the cue taken from the Cure Brain Cancer’s
icon the Crane, being a representation of the courage shown by their fundraising community.

It’s been a very exciting period for Tulip Time since the end of last year’s record
breaking Festival (38,000+ visitors); with the pinnacle being named as
World Tulip Festival of the Year by the World Tulip Summit Society (WTSS).
This accolade is even more impressive when you consider the competition consisted of
high profile festivals with huge budgets from some 17 countries as far afield as Asia, Turkey,
the United States and Europe - including Keukenhof in the Netherlands!
Whilst we obviously can’t go head to head with some of the other competitors in regard to size, it was
noted that we excelled in the promotion and celebration of the tulip flower across a range of criteria
including the quality of the tulip experience, level of innovation, contribution to the destination’s
sustainability and amount of public and media recognition.
An interesting fact that perhaps goes unknown is that annually Tulip Time attracts 65,000+ visitors
to the towns and villages across the region, with 38,000+ of these enjoying the festivities
in Corbett Gardens overall resulting in $7.2 million flowing into the regions visitor economy.
