We’ve found a blooming good day out for your next Queensland road trip. Sunshine & Sunflowers is a one-day event hosted by a lucerne farming family in Kalbar who brightened up their drought-ravaged land by planting 200,000 sunflowers! Located an hour south-west of Brisbane in the Scenic Rim/Fassifern Valley region, the farm will be showcased in all its golden glory on Saturday March 27.
Early risers can salute the sun with Sunrise Sunflower Yoga followed by a locally sourced breakfast bowl while adventure-seekers can soar above the blooms on a helicopter joy ride. The event’s sunset dinner is already sold out, but you can still pre-order a picnic platter of regional delights for two from Lovett’s Kalbar Café or enjoy a cooking class. There’ll also be coffee vans, food trucks, picnic spots, and activities on offer and your ticket includes three sunflowers to take home.
Entry times are staggered throughout the day so get in quick to book your #sunflowerselfie
