Bloom Festival

There are so many fantastic things to see and do across the width and breadth of the Great Southern of Western Australia and the Bloom Festival in spring is the perfect place to start.  With an interesting and varied array of events through most of our 19 towns during September and October, you are sure to find something interesting to do!

Great Southern Treasures showcases the smaller places that thrive on the commitment and inspiration of the communities that choose to live, work and play there. Experience this celebration of country life that is the Bloom Festival whether you are exploring the area for the first time or as a local enjoying your own backyard and the incredible flora of the region.

If you enjoyed our hospitality in the past then please share that with your friends and encourage them to hit the roads and tracks with you, as you join us in spring. Let us share our patch of paradise with you, a truly Great Southern experience and we know you’ll have a blooming good time.
