Grampians Wildflower Show – About Us

STOP PRESS!
Unfortunately, due to the latest Covid19 restrictions, we have to cancel our planned Flora Field trips and guided walks in the Halls Gap Botanic Garden for this year. Fingers crossed for next year!

The Grampians Wildflower Show invites you to step into the ‘Grampians garden’.

The Grampians has a wealth of flowering native plants. So many in fact that it was once called the “Garden of Victoria” by Baron Von Mueller, the first Director of the Melbourne Botanic Garden.

A burst of yellow from a showy parrot pea bush, delicate scented sun orchids bending in the wind, banksias in all their bold, spiky glory. Cross paths with a dazzling array of native flowers in the Grampians. Once described as the ‘garden of Victoria’, the region is home to more than one third of Victoria’s flora.

Since 1937 enthusiastic and dedicated Halls Gap locals have been running the Grampians Wildflower Show each spring. 2019 was our 81st show! We created a display of magnificent flowers picked under strict permit, each one identified and labelled so visitors could learn about our magnificent flora. A wide range of complementary displays were also available and we ran guided walks in the Halls Gap Botanic Gardens.

If you are looking to visit the Grampians to enjoy the Grampians Wildflower activities we recommend visiting Visit Grampians website to book your accommodation and make the most of your visit to this beautiful region.

COVID-19 changes for 2020 Grampians Wildflower Show

We recognise that it is unlikely that large events will be able to be held anytime soon so have come up with an exciting new concept to continue the local passion for wildflowers and fulfill our aims of sharing our knowledge with anyone who’s interested. So, for 2020, our program will consist of a string of free Flora Field Trips culminating in a weekend of guided walks in the Halls Gap Botanic Garden.
