Tessalaar Tulip Festival in Mebourne


I’ve been a bit busy these days so haven’t got chance to write my trip to Melbourne last weekend. It was long weekend and I thought it would be boring to stay at home and got nothing to do for the whole weekend so.. visiting Melbourne will do! 

Arriving at Southern Cross Station on Sunday morning then bought the Sunday Saver ticket for only $2.90! Couldn’t believe it! The $2.90 Sunday saver ticket valid for traveling by train, tram and bus within any section for the whole day! While it costs you about $16 for a Day Tripper ticket in Sydney! Well then.. continuing my trip to Lilydale station by train and changed for special bus to The Tessalaar Tulip Festival.  The $15 admission included the return bus service to Lilydale station.  Entering the garden with some stalls selling Dutch food like poffertjes , the staffs dressed in Holland traditional costumes, small windmollen and of course the tulips! Just felt like entering  a tulip garden in Amstedam! Claimed to be more than a million spring flowering bulbs and 65 varieties of tulips spread over the large garden look like a large beautiful rug made from tulips.
