The 80th Grampians Wildflower Show will be held over the last weekend of September – Saturday 29 and Sunday 30. Please note the change in dates to the last weekend in September rather than the first weekend in October.
The show will concentrate on showing visitors the flowers in their natural setting. There will also be a great display of named flowers in the Visitor Information Centre, with experts available to help identify flowers.
There will also be a display of plants used by local indigenous people for food and other purposes, plus works from the artists, photographer John Tiddy and renowned textile artist Lynne Stone. Lynn will be on site to explain and demonstrate how she achieves her lifelike flowers.
There will be regular guided walks through the Grampians Flora Botanic Garden. Self-guided drive and walks guides and will run as well as a couple of tag along “Orchids and other Wildflowers” tours further afield.
The entry charge will be $2, which covers the entry to the display and the garden walks. There is also a charge of $2 for the printed guides, and of $5 per head for the tag along tours.
