Head down to this beautiful dog-friendly farm and pick out your very own sunflowers

Need a new Instagram pic? Look no further!

We’ve all seen and envied the photos of endless sunflowers in a field. Speculating where we could possibly dally among these gorgeous flowers and take a snap just like that?

Well, we’ve found the perfect spot! The Sunflower Farm located near Ballarat has over 200,000 sunflowers blooming across its land.

Grab your bucket and scissors, and hurry!

Open every weekend (and sometimes throughout the week), from 10am to 5pm the farm is inviting the general public to this sunflower haven. For only a measly $5 entry fee, and $2 per stem you can take home your very own bunch. There’s no limit to how many you pick either!

Oh, and this year when you visit the Sunflower field you will also have the chance to pick your own sweet corn! That’s worthy of a road trip in itself. The corn isn’t quite ready yet, but sunflower season is almost over so we wouldn’t wait around.

Visitors are advised to wear suitable shoes for walking around the paddock and watch out for any snakes in the area. Dogs are also welcomed (making for an even cuter Instagram post) but will have to remain on a leash at all times.

Located at 420 Navigator-Dunnstown Rd in Dunnstown (near Ballarat), the farm is only 90 minutes out from Melbourne and just over an hour from Geelong.
