Stroll Through One Million Flowers At This Massive Scenic Rim Sunflower Festival In March

By Urban List Gold Coast
3rd Feb 2023

Our favourite sunflower farm will soon be re-opening its gates to celebrate its third 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 March 2023.

Head to Kalbar Sunflower Farm from Friday 10 March to Sunday 12 March 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, followed by a healthy breakfast of Scenic Rim produce. How good will all that look on your ‘gram? 

If you’re more of a late riser, there will also be sunflower cooking classes throughout the day, entertainment for the kids, a unique painting class, helicopter rides, a huge sunflower maze, family photo sessions and more. 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 Sunday 19 February. 

Hungry? Grab a bite to eat and get your daily caffeine fix from one of the coffee and food vans located onsite 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. If this wasn’t already enough wholesome vibes, a portion of all sunflower sales during the festival will be donated to the Cancer Council. 

Ready to spend a day smelling the flowers? Tickets will set you back $22 per person, and will go on sale sometime in late February. Sign up here to be the first to know when dates are announced and tickets go on sale.
