You know those aesthetic Insta pics you see of people wandering gracefully through vibrant sunflower fields? Well, that could be you next April. Kalbar Sunflower Festival is set for another lap around the sun(flowers), which means you’ll be able to get up close to these bright beauties.
Kalbar Sunflower Festival is held in the Scenic Rim, about an hour and fifteen-minute drive southwest of Brisbane. The sixteen-acre sunflower field will be in full bloom with over a million sunflowers, ready for all the camera snaps you can imagine.
In 2024, the festival will run over three big days from Friday, April 19 to Sunday, April 21.
Over the weekend, you’ll get to experience some exciting things such as a walk-through sunflower maze, mini photo shoots, all the while enjoy market stalls, live entertainment, and an array of themed activities like sunflower art classes, yoga and sound healing meditation, helicopter rides, and a sunset soiree.
Not to mention a long lunch in the sunflower field, with a delicious local produce menu.
In between sunflower walks, taste your way through the local vendors serving up food and drinks.
Kids are set to have a whole lot of fun at the 2024 festival, with a fairy garden, face painting, bubbles, colouring in, painting, craft and even a sandpit.
Tickets go on sale in March 2024, and since the festival has sold out in less than twenty-four hours in previous years, you’ll want to get in quick.
For first access to tickets, sign up to the Kalbar Sunflowers mailing list.
Please note: Kalbar Sunflowers is only open for the three days of the festival. There is no admittance to the farm outside of these dates.
