The Big Bouquet is a modern, working cut flower farm and alpaca stud located in Healesville in the heart of the Yarra Valley, only an hour from Melbourne. Take the opportunity to visit and look behind the scenes. Learn firsthand about the growing of top quality gerberas and the breeding of alpacas.

A guided tour of The Big Bouquet will take you into the massive three acre glasshouse in which the gerberas are grown and will introduce you to all the aspects involved in producing these stunning cut flowers. The educational display in the visitor centre will lead you through the fascinating science of gerbera propagation and growth. Flowers, plants and seeds are available for purchase. The tour also includes an informative talk on alpacas, and an opportunity to take a close look at these friendly creatures. For visitors wanting to enter the alpaca industry there are animals for sale and ongoing support and advice is all part of the after-sale service offered by The Big Bouquet.

All attractions are under cover. In the glasshouse you can enjoy the comfort of a minimum year-round temperature of 18 degrees Celsius. There is full wheelchair access to all attractions.

In the gift shop you will find an extensive range of alpaca products, ranging from raw fleeces right through to luxurious garments made from alpaca fibre blended with silk. The range includes coats, scarves, wraps, jumpers, cardigans, hats, gloves, knitting yarns, blankets, socks, throw rugs, slippers etc. The shop also carries a range of locally produced culinary delights.

The cafe serves light lunches, Devonshire teas, cakes and great coffees. All this accompanied by a friendly chat! For visitors preferring to take their own food, picnic facilities are available in the park and there is even a playground for the kids.
