This is what KaBloom is really all about; the breathtaking splendour of millions of flowers across five acres of plantings set in the gorgeous Dandenong Ranges. This floral sensation will melt your heart and fill your soul. Discounted tickets with our Autumn Fever Weeks 27 -31 March and 3-6 April, enjoy the serenity outside the rush of school holidays.
Roll up, roll up to see the world’s first KaBloom Circus spectacular! Visitors will be treated to a show like no other as flower fairies, sprites and pixies emerge from the magical woods to delight and entertain. The troupe of sensational circus artists from Melbourne’s own ‘SWAY’ will perform on sway poles, five metres up in the air! Be enthralled by the sometimes mischievous and outlandish performers who will take you on a journey through the weird and wonderful world of BLOOM.
