Having lived in Ballarat for my whole life, I’ve seen quite a few Begonia Festivals. This has been, by far, the best one I have ever been to. The reason I enjoyed this one so much is that it is the first time as an adult that I felt like there were things for me to do.
Previously, I walked past the places where kids made bird houses and tool boxes and the petty farm, and that was all fine, but this time I actually got to go somewhere and hang out for ages and really enjoy myself. The Mitchel Harris Wine garden and the Tea house were high on my list.
The Glass House was also free this year, so we made sure that we went in and looked at all the begonias. After all, begonias are the whole point of the festival.
My sister came with me to check out all the activities. She wore a denim maxi skirt (ex dress that she cut the top off), white singlet and simple plate necklace.
This bag is a family heirloom. I'm very jealous that she has it. She wears it all the time.
I also loved this cute little gingerbread house.
