Shimmering Pines Farm Sunflower Festival | Dec 2023

Pick Your Own Mini Sunflowers – Shimmering Pines Farm Sunflower Festival Update 2023

Up until recently it has been a very dry season this year and due to the lack of rain the sunflowers at Shimmering Pines Farm have not grown very tall. In fact they would call them Mini Sunflowers!

Unfortunately due to the lack rain they have also lost a large section of their crop which sadly means they are unable to hold their usual annual market weekend.

On the positive side they have managed to save enough sunflowers to offer Pick Your Own Mini Sunflowers.


The height of the mini sunflowers is around 40cm or knee height. This means they are the perfect height for a vase and will still look beautiful in photos.

Pick Your Own Mini Sunflowers – PRICING

  • Adults 15+ years – $15 (5 stems)
  • Child 5-14 years – $5 (2 stems)
  • Babies & Toddlers 0-4 years – Free


Don’t Forget:

  • Take your own buckets and snips
  • Wear farm appropriate clothing and footwear – they suggest gumboots
  • Take your own allergy medication if required

Hopefully next year the sunflowers will be back to their full height, as in the photos below.
