During the commercial lavender non flowering season - February to November
Even though the commercial lavender is not in full bloom, the gardens offer a large selection of other lavender varieties, and there is normally some purple flowers all year round. As well as a vast array of other plants, bulbs and flowers. So even though the commercial rows of lavender are not in full bloom, there is still lots of purple and colour to enjoy and photograph.
During the non flowering season there will be two options available to you;
1. Book a shuttle as above. The shuttle requires minimum 4 people to operate, or
2. If you wish to visit the farm but 2.5 hours at the farm would seem too long, then there is another possible option available. The Bay Of Fires Day Tour visits the lavender farm as its first stop, with the driver giving an interactive talk on the lavender before allowing some free time for photos and to visit the gift shop. All up a 30 minute visit. The Bay of Fires Day Tour departs on Tuesdays / Thursdays & Saturdays, and requires minimum 2 people to operate.
