Around 200,000 Sunflowers Are About To Bloom At This Sunflower Farm Just Outside Of Melbourne

If you've not already got a stacked itinerary for February, here's a late runner to add to the mix.

Dunnstown farmers Laiken and Karl Britt are opening up their sunflower farm this weekend for you to pick your own, as many as you bloody well like.

The seeds were planted late last year, and are expected to bloom into roughly 200,000 sunflowers by the end of the month. Keep an eye on their Instagram for exactly when that happens.

The entry fee to the farm is $5, and each stem from then on is charged at $2. Meanwhile, the countless photo opportunities are absolutely free.

Doggos are welcome to join you on-leash, and it's recommended chucking on some sturdy footwear—boots ideally—given the terrain and any creepy crawlies that may be hanging around at ground level.

BYO seceteurs and sunny disposition.
