Stroll Through One Million Flowers At The Massive Scenic Rim Kalbar Sunflower Festival

By Urban List Gold Coast
8th Feb 2024

Our favourite sunflower farm will soon be re-opening its gates to celebrate a fourth season of blooming goodness and we could not be more excited to spice up our Instagram. Kalbar Sunflower Farm in the Scenic Rim will be welcoming visitors back for their epic annual sunflower festival, showcasing over one million beautiful sunflowers in April 2024.

Head to Kalbar Sunflower Farm from Friday 19 April to Sunday 21 April 2024 and you can take in the fields of gold in all their glory during the incredible Kalbar Sunflower Festival, with a heap of activities planned to make the most of the blooms. If you wake up nice and early, kick the morning off in the best way possible with sunrise yoga among the flowers or a sound healing meditation session.

If you’re more of a late riser, there will also be a huge sunflower maze to explore, art classes among the blooms, helicopter rides for aerial views, a huge market with coffee, food vans and gift stalls, kids activities, and of course, photo sessions. Just want to don your best floral outfit and take endless photos amongst the flowers? You can do that too (with full permission rather than a stolen roadside stop, might we add), with farm visit tickets on sale from late March.

Want to really get into the sunflower spirit? There are a range of special events held over the three days  including a Sunflower Lunch on Friday, Mater Foundation Fundraiser Luncheon on Saturday, Sunset Dinner on Saturday evening and Jazz In The Sunflowers Luncheon on Sunday. Phew. If this wasn’t already enough wholesome vibes, a portion of all sunflower sales during the festival will be donated to charities focused on cancer care and research, including the Mater Foundation.

Ready to spend a day smelling the flowers? Tickets will set you back $32 per adult, $15 per 13-17 year old, and children under 12 years are free. 

Tickets will go on sale in late March. Sign up here to be the first to know when dates are announced and tickets go on sale.
