In full bloom

From humble beginnings 12 years ago, the Mallee Almond Blossom Festival has bloomed into an event bigger than anyone could have anticipated, attracting visitors from interstate and beyond to the tiny town of Robinvale to bask in the beauty of the biggest explosion of almond blossoms in the Southern Hemisphere.

COME this time of year, there’s something in the air in Robinvale.
