Corbett Gardens in Bowral is the showpiece of the Tulip Time Festival and dates back to 1911 when, at Mrs Ada Corbett's suggestion, the local tourist association purchased Deadmans Paddock for a public park. Corbett Gardens, located in the centre of town, boasts a huge array of tulips and colourful springtime bulbs, shrubs and trees.
Corbett Gardens in Bowral, one of the region's oldest and most beautiful parks, is the centrepiece of the Spring Garden Festival with over 75,000 massed tulips on display and 15,000 annuals. The Festival attracts over 40,000 people each year and is held at the end of September over two. This garden is a public garden and managed by the local council.
Entry to the garden is free of charge most of the year. However, an entry fee applies during the Tulip Time Festival.

Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
