10 Blooming Beautiful Pics of Summer Sunflowers

Summer is sunflower season on the Southern Downs and every year they’re blooming beautiful! From late December onwards, a sea of yellow floods parts of the region as spectacular sunflower fields line major highways and country roads around Warwick and Allora.

The sunflowers in the 2017/18 Summer have not started blooming yet, but when they do, follow the Sunflower Route, a 50km round trip that will take you past glorious fields of these golden giants. Before you depart, check out the Southern Downs and Granite Belt Facebook page, or give the Warwick Visitor Information Centre a buzz to find out the best spots for exploring.

When inspecting these beauties, please keep in mind the sunflowers are growing on private land and form part of the farmers’ livelihoods. Please be respectful and do not trespass. To get that perfect image you don’t have to jump any fences – simply bring a stool or something to give you height and voila, perfect perspective so you can nab that killer shot.
