2018 Info

There are two Hanami (‘flower viewing’) weekends which are extremely popular (aka busy) but also full of entertainment and activities. We much prefer however to go on a weekday and are looking forward to the kids day on 22nd August. And there is also a gardening day with Costa Georgiadis on 21st August.

Cherry Blossom Viewing

Hanami (meaning “flower viewing”) is the traditional Japanese custom of enjoying the beauty of flowers, especially cherry blossoms (桜 sakura). The practice of Hanami is more than a thousand years old and is still very popular in Japan today. It takes place in the spring for only a week or two when the flowers are in bloom. Sydney Cherry Blossom Festival invites you to enjoy a self-guided tour around the cherry blossom trail and discover pockets of wonderful cherry blossoms all along the walking trail in our Japanese Gardens.
