Western Australia’s Great Southern region is ready to blossom with 80 events across the region for the month-long The Hidden Treasures of the Great Southern 2017 Bloom Festival.
This is a good excuse for a road trip ... to get outside and enjoy spring in all its glory.
From September 15 to October 15, 80-odd events will be held through the shires of Broomehill-Tambellup, Cranbrook, Gnowangerup, Jerramungup, Katanning, Kent, Kojonup, Plantagenet and Woodanilling.
The Bloom Festival is a celebration of the spring season with scenic drives through the region, wildflower walks, open gardens, long lunches, flora and fauna discovery trails, and events for all ages.
The festival opens in Katanning with the Flowers Feathers Family Fun Fair on September 16. It’s a day of entertainment and activities, food and drink, displays, local markets and yes, even a chook auction.
