MAP: Where to find sunflowers on the Southern Downs

SUMMER has officially hit the Southern Downs and with it swarms of visitors looking to capture that perfect field of yellow.

One glance at Instagram will tell you tourists are desperate for a snap alongside some sunflowers, and with the right direction the photo opportunities are endless.

 

 

For those eager for that perfect shot, the most well-known spot is that of 468 Willowvale Rd.

Just before the turn-off to the New England Highway at the Eight Mile, be mindful of traffic as the crop is alongside a major highway.

 

 

Quieter spots include a field on the Cunningham Highway at Gladfield, on the north side of the highway, or on the way toward Killarney, near Witches Ln.

Remember these crops are a farmer's livelihood, so don't trespass or litter in your quest for that photo.

Also be careful of snakes, spiders of bees that may be spotted around the crops.
