Samson Tree Festival 2024

Samson Tree Festival 

As the weather cools and winds swing around to the south-west, this is Djeran, the season of flowering banksia.

Bring family and friends to join us in celebrating our local trees. Bring a picnic and enjoy some live music.

Learn about Samson Park bushland and its habitats.

Join in a cultural walk—an Auslan interpreter will be provided for the first walk.
