Warratina Lavender Festival

Nestled amongst the gum trees and strawberry fields of the Yarra Valley you will find a quaint little 10-acre lavender farm by the name of Warrintina. With beautifully manicured gardens, picnic areas and tea rooms. You can visit the gardens throughout the year or on one of their specialist weekends, dog days or woodworking festivals.

When is Warratina Lavender Festival 2022?

The Lavender Festival is on the weekend of Saturday 19 November and Sunday 20 November 2022.

The lavender festival runs over two days mid November every year and is a spectacle for the senses. A craft market lines the driveway with local lavender themed wares, delicious food on offer and even a cheeky alpaca or two.

There is an abundance of choice of delicious meals and canapes available at the tea rooms, as well as wood-fired pizzas and Devonshire teas on offer. The major drawcard of course is the rows of lavender. Perfect for that Instagram worthy shot, to test your variety knowledge or just to run through, skimming the blossom.

Over the two day festival, you will find entertainment such as bagpipers, Irish dancing, acoustic duos & belly dancers. Most of the entertainment happens in the afternoon, so be mindful when picking your tickets this year as they are split into separate morning and afternoon timeslots.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tastings and exploring the grounds, learning about how the products are picked, dried and consumed. There are several lavender fields to view, as well as extensive gardens and raspberry cane rows, just perfect for the picking (This is an additional cost).

If you are looking for a high energy festival with lots of rides and activities for the kids, this is not the festival for you. However, if picnics in the picturesque Yarra Valley with family and a beautiful slow-moving day out are more your thing, then we would totally recommend Warrintina.
