Time for the most fantastical showcase of colour, beauty and excitement at this year’s Tesselaar KaBloom, Festival of Flowers, daily till 28 April.
Held on Tesselaar’s flower farm in Melbourne’s stunning Dandenong Ranges, KaBloom is a brand new spectacle where circus arts and flowers collide.
Step right up to see the world’s first KaBloom circus spectacular where artists from Melbourne’s own CircaNICA, the circus agency of the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA), perform a modern extravaganza every day—think contortionists amongst the marigolds, acrobats in the snapdragons and performing jugglers in the petunias.
Fun for all the family, children can watch daily performances of the world renowned The Circus Firemen, get lost in our famous crate maze, twice daily fairy folklore storytelling, eggsellent egg hunts over Easter and an obstacle course that will bring out the child in everyone. And the best part, children (16 and under) have free entry into Festival every day.
The farm’s infamous tractor train will be on continuous rotation around the flower fields where visitors are encouraged to make the most of the Instagram worthy views whilst on board. There will be giant garden games, potting clinics, delicious food and plenty of opportunities for some retail therapy.
Following in his grand-parents footsteps, fourth generation nurseryman, Paul Tesselaar said that he is thrilled to provide another opportunity for people to visit their well-known flower farm.
“There is nothing quite like KaBloom anywhere else in Australia. World class circus arts combined with millions of flowers in bloom provides the perfect stage for an amazing day out,” he said.
Open every day from 10am-5pm, entry: adults $25, concession $22 and children under 16 free. Some activities require pre booking and additional costs. Tesselaar Flower Farm is at 357 Monbulk Road, Silvan; Tel: 9737 7777; www.kabloom.com.au
