The organisers of Tulip Time have announced that the event will be moved online due to uncertainty about Covid-19 restrictions.
This year marks 60 years of this annual event, and the tulips planted back in May have been designed to pay tribute to this Diamond Anniversary milestone. The organisers recognised that the event this year would need to be structured a little differently to previous events due to health measures such as social distancing, and released tickets for designated dates and viewing times in order to manage visitor numbers. These tickets were quickly snapped up by locals and people eager to travel to the Southern Highlands for this popular event. However, due to the current Covid-19 lockdown, the organisers have once had to redesign Tulip Time.
All tickets that were purchased for designated dates and times have been refunded, and all people who purchased tickets will receive a notification about how to view the event online.
The displays will be available to view online as the tulips peak and come into full bloom, which is expected to be mid to late September.
Corbett Gardens will remain open through September and October for locals to view the tulips in person. However, strict Covid-19 safety procedures will be in place. All visitors will be required to sign in using a QR-code, show some form of identification and wear a face mask at all times. Visitor numbers will be limited, and a time restriction will be imposed.
The changes also mean that the traditional stalls and entertainment that are usually in place for the event will no longer go forward.
Highland FM is very proud to be a partner and supporter of Tulip Time, one the most well known and loved annual events in the Southern Highlands. We have updated our CSA for Tulip Time to reflect the changes made to the event.
