Yes, the tulip festival is a worthwhile visit. Amazing array of colours, the music the food, the people in their Dutch costumes. Make a day of it, teesalaar's tulip farm in Monbulk location is also close to the silvan dam, Wonderful area.
No I haven’t been to the Melbourne 1, I didn’t even know anything about it. I’ve only been to the lovely A.C.T. 1 a few times. I’ve been in Melbourne for last middle, 5 Septembers, & the end of 2 Octobers, but I won’t be down there this Sept/Oct.Tulips have been my favourite flower, since they have been on sale for most of the year. They’re also beautiful. I’ll try & be in Melbourne at the right time, next in 2016.
