Tulips are the stars of spring. 

Experience a kaleidoscope of tulips carpeting public gardens and premier private gardens during Tulip Time in the Southern Highlands.

The 90,000 mass-planted tulips nestled among blossoming mature trees in Corbett Gardens are the centrepiece of the Tulip Time Festival where there is daily live musical entertainment,
an array of market stalls and lots of photo opportunities.

Bowral is where the idea for the Mary Poppins character originated when the author,
P L Travers lived there during her teens. 

Celebrating 85 years since the first book was written, the magic of Mary Poppins will transform Corbett Gardens into a wonderland of colour, music and fun in 2019.
Join us for a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious adventure.

WINNER of the 2015 World Tulip Award.
