Join Bill Peach Journeys for a wonderful Springtime Sojourn which celebrates the wonder and spectacle of the season by visiting the renowned annual Floriade event in Canberra and the delightful Tulip Time in Bowral. Journey from Sydney to Bowral for Tulip Time – one of Australia’s oldest and most beautiful flora festivals with over 100,000 tulips and 25,000 annuals on spectacular display amongst Corbett Gardens and local homesteads. Savour the delights of the Southern Highlands staying in luxury accommodation as we explore this beautiful region before moving on to Canberra.

Floriade is the biggest flower festival in Australia, a spectacular celebration of spring, set in Canberra’s Commonwealth Park. The colourful and fragrant garden beds are set against the backdrop of a festival filled with vibrant entertainment and markets. Visit the National Arboretum, a mosaic of living forests and view the incredible Gauguin’s World exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia, the first major showing of the art of French post-Impressionist Paul Gauguin in Australia, viewing some of his most recognised masterpieces. Stay at the luxurious and historic Hyatt Hotel Canberra enjoying fine dining and fascinating touring in the nation’s capital. Join Bill Peach Journeys in experiencing all the colour and splendour of spring, in style of course!

About Sojourns

Our Sojourn programmes are short break journeys put together in conjunction with themes, events or experiences. These programmes range from cruising New Zealand’s North Islands to world-class sporting events and unique experiences throughout Australia and New Zealand.

About Single Traveller Journeys

We recognise the specific requirements of single travellers and that’s why a number of our journeys are single supplement free, affording you the benefit of your own single room, without any, or with significantly reduced extra cost. In fact, over 40% of our guests travel alone and return to Bill Peach Journeys again and again. In this way, you can enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow travellers during the day, along with the safety and security of travelling with an escorted group, but still retire to your own personal room in the evening.  Note: The single supplement free offer cannot be taken in conjunction with any other offer.

Fully inclusive

This journey includes accommodation, all meals as specified, touring throughout, transfers, services of a dedicated Journey Director and admission tickets to Floriade.


The coaches that we use for the ground component of this journey are fully air-conditioned.

Pre Tour

Flights from your home port to Sydney are not included in the journey price. Should you require flights to and from Sydney, we can provide a competitive quote on airfares and pre and post tour accommodation in Sydney, at the commencement and conclusion of your journey.

Level of Fitness Required – Easy Going

These journeys are not physically demanding unless you want them to be. They include easy guided walks, which are mainly on flat ground. There will be times when you are required to board a launch for shore excursions. You must be able to walk up to 500 metres unaided and will not need any foreseen assistance throughout the journey. For all clients to fully enjoy this travel experience, excellent health and mobility is required by all.
