Tiptoeing through the tulips

HUNDREDS of people have been flocking to Table Cape to enjoy the stunning display of tulips at Van Diemen Quality Bulbs.

The tulip farm opened its gates in late September and will stay open until late October showcasing the blooms in all their glory.

While the iconic Tulip Festival has been postponed due to Covid-19 concerns, the Waratah-Wynyard Council has instead opted for a month of smaller events, as part of its 2021 Spring Loaded program.

The tulip display, set against the stunning Table Cape coastline and lighthouse, is a centrepiece for the festivities.

Last weekend’s perfect conditions saw hundreds of visitors flock to the site and enjoy a wander in the fields.

Young and young-at-heart delighted in the explosion of colour and variety of tulips on display and also took the opportunity to purchase potted or cut flowers as well as the farm’s other specialities liliums and Dutch iris.

It is believed to be the largest tulip fields in the southern hemisphere that people can actually wander in.

The tulip farm is open daily from 9am until 4.30pm.
