Who doesn’t love spring? It’s sunny, it’s colourful and it’s filled with sweet-smelling flowers. If you’re keen to get your fix of blooming flowers in Sydney and beyond, Parramatta’s Wistaria Gardens is secretly one of the best spots to enjoy the magic of spring. This September, the garden is hosting a giant spring party with live music, food and entertainment to complement the spectacular display of flowers on site. The event will take place over two weekends with plenty of fun activities lined up for anthophiles.
September in Wistaria Gardens
Bask in sunshine and fresh flowers on the weekend of September 16-17 and 23-24 as the gardens celebrate their annual bloom season. Celebrations include live music, food and beverages and guided tours of the garden grounds. Plus, marvel at the vibrant colours of hanging wisteria, cherry, peach and almond blossoms and see the revived garden beds filled with primulas, snapdragons, pansies and violas. There’s also First Nations cultural programs, artsy workshops and spring photo competitions that can help you score a voucher to Parramatta Park’s Misc.
Wistaria Gardens which came into being in 1907 officially became part of Parramatta Park in 2022. Famous for its wisteria blossoms, the gardens have been brought back to life by dedicated efforts by Greater Sydney Parklands. Get more information about the event here.
