Spring has come! It' my favorite season of the year even I don't like its gusty wind. I always looking forward to the blooming cherry blossom and the tulip time so for you who are looking forward to it here are some festivals worth a visit during this spring in Australia.
1. Floriade, Australia's biggest flower festival set up in Canberra from Saturday 11 September to Sunday 10 October 2010.
2. Tulip Time. This year will be a celebration of 50 golden years of Tulip Time in Bowral's Corbett Garden in the Southern Highlands of NSW, from Tuesday 21 September to Monday 4 October 2010.
3. Sakura Matsuri Festival on the weekend of Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September 2010. In its 21st year at the Cowra Japanese Garden, Sakura Matsuri has developed into a showcase of Japanese arts, crafts and cultural activities. Even if you are not into Japanese culture but if you do love enjoying the beautiful cherry blossoms you shouldn't miss this much loved festival in a beautiful country town of Cowra.
Spring two years ago, I made my way to the Sakura Matsuri and hopefully this year I'll have a chance to go back there.
