The Ballarat Begonia Festival will make a flourishing return this year over the Labour Day long weekend.
The three-day event will take place in the iconic Ballarat Botanical Gardens, celebrating the city’s rich horticulture heritage and boasting a line-up of demonstrations and talks led by a roster of celebrity presenters and industry experts including:
Paul West – River Cottage Australia host; Hannah Moloney – sustainable gardener and Gardening Australia presenter; Courtney Roulston – MasterChef Australia alumni; and Jerry Coleby-Williams – horticulture/begonia expert.
Showcasing a signature collection of rare begonias, the Conservatory display will return, this year playing homage to the redevelopment of the Ballarat Fernery – one of Australia’s oldest ferneries – that is set to open in time for the festival. Visitors can expect to see an exciting display inspired by the spiral shapes of fern fronds.
