ALVA Coach Trip to the Southern Highlands.



All aboard for a wonderful trip to see the flowering tulips in Bowral.  Now in its 57th year, this award-winning festival is one of Australia’s biggest floral festivals, attracting tens of thousands of visitors.  The highlight of the festival is the mass planting of more than 75,000 tulip bulbs and 15,000 annuals at Corbett Gardens, in a spectacular Springtime display.  There are also private gardens open for inspection – including tours and talks; a street fair; window displays; and entertainment throughout the festival in Corbett Gardens. This unique opportunity includes a short stop in the historic town of Berrima with lunch at the Scottish Arms Hotel in Bowral.
