43. See the Tulips in Tulip Time

Tulip time had its beginnings in 1958, when a group of community citizens met to Organise a festival to publicise the town of Bowral. What made this festival different was the planting of 15,000 tulips in a “tulip walk” in Corbett gardens, the municipal garden in the centre of Bowral. “Tulip time” is an extremely popular time to visit the Southern Highlands; people come from all around to see this spectacular event which stretches over approximately a Month or more depending on weather and other circumstances influencing the growth of the Tulips.

Each year there are a variety of other activities held during Tulip Time – from dancing, musical recitals in the band rotunda and street theatre in Corbett Gardens, street fair, art and craft exhibitions, to horticultural displays, and other activities. There are plenty of things to see and do in the Southern Highlands during Tulip Time.

Interesting fact: Tulip Time celebrated 50 Golden Years in 2010
