Ballarat Begonia Festival – Illuminated Garden

Be amazed as you uncover an Illuminated Garden of blooms, enchantment and wonder.

Immerse yourself within three areas that are distinctly Ballarat, the Lake, Discovery and Bloom – like you’ve never seen before.

At the Lake stroll across the 14m long hovering jetty and wander amidst glowing over-sized lilies and water symbolic of Lake Wendouree. Be guided by interactive lights revealing a path ahead and watch out for the magical swan who safeguards the garden and hovers over passers-by.

Under the Cedar tree lives a veggie patch of Discovery and radiating sculptures. Can you find their insect friends amongst the foliage?

Admire the giant flowers in Bloom, in celebration of the festival’s alluring Begonias, beautiful by day and enchanting by night.
