Charge the phone and pick out your favourite floral ‘fit, because the Scenic Rim’s beloved sunflower farm is opening its gates to welcome visitors back for their epic annual festival, showcasing their million (yes, A MILLION) beautiful, blooming sunflowers.

Over one weekend in March (the actual date will be announced in late February once the flowers start to bloom), jump in the car and make tracks to the Kalbar Sunflower Festival where you'll bear witness to their astonishing fields of gold. During the festival you have full permission to wander the fields and take all the selfies, and you can even pick your own bunch of sunflowers while you're at it. And be sure to work your way through the maze set amongst four acres of sunflowers.

The experiences on offer at the Sunflower Festival include family photo sessions, helicopter rides, art classes and flower crown making. There will also be live entertainment, kids activities and sunflower-themed market stalls to peruse. 

Hungry? Grab a bite to eat and get your daily caffeine fix from one of the coffee and food vans before paying a visit to the Sunflower Shop for a range of unique, sunflower-themed items, from hats to candles and plant-your-own sunflower seeds

Even better, a portion of all sunflower sales during the festival will be donated to the Cancer Council. Tickets will set you back $22pp, and will go on sale sometime in February, once the sunflower seedlings have grown enough that a date for the festival can be chosen. Sign up here to be the first to know when dates are announced and tickets go on sale.
