Each year—prior to 2020 at least—thousands of people would descend upon Sakura in Japan with the hope of spotting dusty pink cherry blossoms in bloom.
If you were planning on heading over this year and COVID ruined your plans, you'll probably be pretty pleased to hear that you don’t have to go so far to set your eyes on these mystical trees.
From 7 to 20 September, S&R Orchard in Perth’s Hills will be throwing its annual Blossom Festival. And the best bit, the orchard is only a 30-minute drive from the Perth CBD.
For two weeks, visitors will get to bask in the beauty of the S&R Orchard in full bloom, get among some delicious eats and drinks, make some flower crowns and perhaps even check out the animal farm, if that’s your thing. Bonus, pets are welcome.
Bring your best ‘Gram game, $12 entry fee ($7 during the week) and start practising your best Owen Wilson “wow” impression.
