Whilst final attendance figures are still being tallied from this year’s Tulip Time celebrations, Wingecarribee Shire Council is reminding residents there’s still time to enjoy the tulips – free of charge.

Wingecarribee Shire Council’s Parks and Open Spaces Coordinator Greg Bray said that the majority of the blooms were still in great condition thanks in part to the fine weather.

“When you combine the hard work that our Parks and Gardens staff put into this year’s massed gardens with the warm sunshine that we’ve experienced this spring, you can understand why this year’s displays still look so good.

“In fact, some of our regular visitors have commented saying that this year’s displays were some of the most spectacular in recent memory,” he said.

Even though the festival officially closed on Monday 1 October, the flowers will still be in bloom for several days.

“Now that the majority of the crowds have left we encourage all locals to get out and revisit the gardens free of charge as there’s still a good week of colour and show left in the flower beds,” Mr Bray added. “And whilst Corbett Gardens in Bowral was once again the centrepiece of this year’s celebrations, we remind visitors that other outlying public parks such as Leighton Gardens in Moss Vale and Winifred West Park in Mittagong also still have lots of lovely colour on show.”
