A Floral Extravaganza in the Heart of Australia

As the anticipation builds for the Kalbar Sunflower Festival, ticket seekers are urged to secure their spot by booking accommodation early.

Festival insiders reveal that the ticket demand is so colossal that securing accommodation is the golden ticket to an unforgettable sunflower celebration.

Festival founder, Jenny Jenner, emphasises, “All accommodation booked in the Scenic Rim region for the festival weekend will include tickets as a package deal, ensuring a seamless experience for attendees.”

A Blossoming Legacy

Born out of heartache, the Kalbar Sunflower Festival has grown into a symbol of resilience and joy.

Initiated by the Jenner family in 2021 during the grips of a severe drought, the festival is now set to dazzle visitors for the fourth consecutive year from April 19 to 21.

Despite facing personal challenges, the Jenners continue to sow the seeds of happiness, having raised over $115,000 for cancer care in the previous editions.

Blooms Beyond Boundaries

Amidst the picturesque landscapes of Kalbar, a million sunflowers will sway in the breeze, creating a haven of sunshine and happiness. 

The festival offers a diverse range of accommodation options, including camping, glamping, house and farm stays, Airbnb, cottages, motels, and hotels.

For those seeking an immersive experience, a courtesy bus will be available to transport attendees to and from the festival grounds during the three-day extravaganza.

Embracing 2024: A Tribute to Russell Jenner

In the absence of Russell Jenner, the festival’s founder and a beloved figure, the 2024 edition is dedicated to his memory.

Jenny Jenner remains resolute in continuing the legacy, aiming to raise $100,000 for the Mater Cancer Care Centre at Springfield. The festival promises a myriad of events, including sunrise yoga, sunflower art classes, unique dining experiences, photography sessions, flower crown masterclasses, and even helicopter rides above the sunflower fields.

Visitors are invited to wander through the sunflower fields, creating lasting memories amidst breathtaking mountain views.

The Kalbar Sunflower Festival is not just an event; it’s a celebration of life, resilience, and the enduring spirit of the Australian community. Be part of this spectacle by booking your accommodation; see the full listing here.
