Picture of the Day: The Table Cape Tulip Farm from Above
THE TABLE CAPE TULIP FARM FROM ABOVE
Photographer’s Description [Anthony Crehan]: Aerial view from a helicopter of the tulip field at the Table Cape Tulip Farm on Table Cape, near Wynyard, on the North West Coast of Tasmania. It was Blooming Tulips Festival Day at Wynyard and fortunately for me and my six-year-old grandson, the helicopter operator was selling 15 minute joy-flights. On the left-hand end of the rows of tulips you can see some of the visitors to the farm’s open day.
Table Cape Farm is operated by Van Diemen Quality Bulbs. The farm is situated in a truly iconic location on the North West coast of Tasmania. Table Cape is an extinct volcanic vent dominating the coastline close to the town of Wynyard. Its 180m cliffs drop away into Bass Strait and Table Cape Farm is perched on the top. The cool, mild climate is ideal for growing bulbs. [Source]
