An annual celebration of all things sunny and flowery will return to the state's East Coast later this month.
Spring Bay Mill's Sunflower Celebration is back for its second year, with a lineup full of experiences and workshops centred around sustainable nature and wellbeing.
Once home to the world's largest wood chip mill, the 43 hectare waterfront site at Triabunna has been lovingly restored into a prominent arts and events venue.
After the success of the inaugural Sunflower Celebration last year, Spring Bay Mill director Anna Cerneaz said they wanted to bring the event back bigger and brighter.

"Last year we were overwhelmed by support for the event. We were expecting 100 people to turn up and we ended up with over 600," she said.
"Underpinning the very existence of the Spring Bay Mill is the idea of regeneration and renewal. That's where we blossom, in that space. This whole event acts as a celebration of sustainability."
Highlights on the day will include organic garden tours, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery scientist discovery expeditions and honey-tasting.
Gardening Australia's Tino Carnevale and Angus Stewart will also be attending, sharing their expertise and filming a segment for the popular ABC program.
The event is also family-friendly, with an array of entertainment including rock painting, scarecrow making and worm tower painting.
As for the main attraction, head horticulturist Marcus Ragus said more than 10,000 plants had already been planted at the mill, including the restoration of native grasslands.
"We have planted over 1000 plants across several different varieties in preparation for this year [alone]," he said.
"We love to plant sunflowers at the mill because the plants store enormous amounts of carbon from the atmosphere very rapidly in the stems and roots.
"We reuse the stems as stakes in the garden and the seeds and shoots are good to eat. We also think they put a smile on people's faces."
