Lavender farms are a sight to behold during blooming season.
For those who are making plans to visit Adelaide from August to January, Lyndoch Lavender Farm is a must-visit as that is the period of time when the lavender flowers flourish and this magical sea of purple never fails to attract tourists from all over the world.
Visitors get to admire the lovely lavender blooms while taking in the floral scent of fresh lavenders in the air—an unforgettable memory that will last a lifetime. Besides the farm, guests can also get their hands on lavender beauty products as well as linger on at a cafe nearby for afternoon tea.
For the uninitiated, there are actually many varieties of lavender flowers and here at Lyndoch Lavender Farm, you get to witness over 90 types on display!
Some you can expect there are English Lavenders, Ferny Leafed Lavenders and French Lavenders; these varieties differ in the shape of the leaves and their colours. Mother Nature is amazing, isn’t she!
Walk down the rows of lavender flowers and while you are at it, don’t forget to capture many pictures for keepsake. Yes, the place is stunning, to say the least.
Rest your weary feet at the cafe that is located just at the foot of the lavender field.
Carrying a selective range of tea snacks with the likes of Lavender Ice Cream (in three different flavours), Lyndoch Lavender Farm Platter, Lavender Scones and Lavender Biscuits, guests can also complete their meal with lavender tea or a hot cuppa.
Just before you leave, take a look around the humble shop if you are interested in their products such as home care, beauty care, gifts and even gourmet foods.
Sample on handmade gourmet delights including lavender honey, jams, chutneys, mustards and jelly and purchase some oils as souvenirs—lavender is said to be a natural stress reliever!
