Lose yourself down a rabbit hole and give in to going a little mad, at the 2016 Ballarat Begonia Festival.


Australia's favourite free family event, the Ballarat Begonia Festival, returns to the beautiful Botanical Gardens this 12-14 March and is set to inspire, with a giant Mad Hatter's Tea Party.

Along with a host of tips from gardening specialists, including Better Homes and Gardens landscaping lad, Jason Hodges, visitors to this year's festival will be invited to immerse themselves in the magical world of Alice in Wonderland.

Visitors will be treated to an absurdly delicious high tea, whimsical music, dance and poetry and play, all wrapped up in the magical setting inspired the classic story.

The event will also see the return of the spectacular, one of a kind, World's Largest Outdoor LEGO Flower, which wowed audiences in 2015. Witness the awesomeness again, along with the stunning living Begonia's in the Conservatory.

There will be also be an assortment of opportunities for all members of the family to be involved. Children's craft and gardening activities, live entertainment and the best of Ballarat's food offerings, all awaits you at this year's Begonia Festival.
