Perth Tulips At Araluen Botanic Park 2020 Plus Insider Top Tips

Spring Tulips are here! Saturday 22 August to 4 October 2020

Do you want to see the best Perth tulips? If so, spend the day at Araluen Botanic Park during the tulip festival. Find out when to visit, how to get there plus our tips for a great day out.

Where is Araluen Botanic Park?

Araluen Botanic Park is in Roleystone, part of the Darling ranges. It takes about 45-minutes in the car from Perth. Follow the signs from the junction of Albany and Brookton highways.

Araluen Entrance Fees & Opening Times

It is open every day of the year except Christmas Day. The gates open at 9 am and close at 6 pm (last entry is 5pm).

Prices as of August 2020 are:

$15 per Adult, $10 Per Child or $45 Family (2 Adults and up to 6 Children)

Online booking is preferred.

Best Time to Visit for Perth Tulips

The best time to visit is during the Araluen Tulip Festival. This is held towards the end of August to the end of September. At this time you will see all the stunning Araluen tulips. You can visit at other times of the year to see other flowers in bloom.

The History of Araluen Botanic Park

Araluen (an Eastern States Aboriginal word meaning Singing Waters or Running Waters) was first established as a holiday camp for The Young Australia League in 1929 by JJ “Boss” Simons. He bought 59 hectares of land in this valley in Roleystone with creeks running through it.

In 1990 the State Government bought the property. During the next 20 years, The Araluen Botanic Park Foundation worked with the State Government to revamp it into what it is today.


There are free BBQs to use or a cafe if you don’t want to cook your own food. Chalet Healy Cafe is under new management with a fresh and exciting new menu for Spring.

There are also benches and plenty of grass for picnics and for kids to run around. During springtime, the Araluen Train runs around the park for a small cost.

Tulips in Perth

Yates Springtime at Araluen has Perth’s biggest display of Tulips. This year it has 150,000 Tulips, 20,000 Daffodils, 4,000 Hyacinths, 4,000 Ranunculus, 4,000 Anemones and 2,000 Grape Hyacinths. Tulips have been planted here since 1930 when the bulbs were imported from Holland. After the war, they were sourced from New Zealand but now come from Tesselaar Bulbs in Victoria. They are refrigerated for 8 weeks and then planted once the ground temperature reaches 12 degrees.

Tips for a Great Day

The park is lovely at any time of the year but I think it is at its best when the tulips are out. We went in August, which is near the start of the season, and there were a lot blooming. It runs until the end of September.

Be prepared for traffic delays as you near the park if you go during tulip season and on a weekend.

If you can, visit during the week, as there will be fewer crowds and traffic and you can enjoy the park more.

Get there as close to when it opens (9 am) for the best parking spots and time to take photos before it gets very busy.

Take a picnic and make use of the grassed area. It’s normally a quick walk back to the car for the picnic so you won’t need to carry it around.

Don’t bring your dog – pets are not allowed in the park.

The use of skateboards, bicycles etc are not allowed either.

The cafe kitchen is open from 10 am to 3 pm so make sure to order any food before then.

Araluen Botanic Park is one of my favourite places to visit in spring to see Perth tulips and flowers.

If you want a lovely walk after visiting here, head to Ellis Brook Valley Reserve. It’s less than a 30 minute drive and the hike to 60 Foot Falls is beautiful, especially in spring.

Where to Stay

We haven’t stayed anywhere here as we live in Perth. However, there are plenty of accommodation options close to Araluen. We mainly use Airbnb for private accommodation rentals when travelling. There’s a great range to choose from with some great pricing too. Click on this to have a look.
