It hits you when you come around the corner - a field of sunflowers stretching out on a rolling paddock, all facing the sun.
Some of them unfurled, some of them dizzyingly tall, and flecked with grasshoppers and other critters.
It's a rare sight in the district, but the family who owns the paddock is inviting the community to come down and check it out, and bring a sunflower (Helianthus annuus) or two home with them.
The Britt family planted the seeds in November, and "we didn't know what was going to happen", according to Laiken Britt.
"We thought we'll throw one bag in and see what happens - and they all grew.
"The bag had 200,000 seeds in it and it looks like most of them germinated.
"We thought it's a bit of fun for people who live in town."
On Saturday, from 10am at the Britt's farm in Dunnstown, the gates will be thrown open for a chance to take a photo, pick some sunflowers, and get lost in the stalks.
The tallest ones are at least eight feet high, and there are thousands.
Ms Britt's husband Karl was recently part of a hay run to fire-affected communities in Omeo, East Gippsland - she said it was a positive thing to do for the community after so much tragedy.
"It puts a smile on everyone's face," Ms Britt said.
"Come down, get a photo, and your kids can run around."
The property is south of Dunnstown, with an access gate at the corner of Ditchfield Road - there will be sunflowers marking how to get there from the main road
Entry on Saturday, February 29, is $5, with one free sunflower, and additional sunflowers are $2 each.
Gates open at 10am and close about 4pm.
Ms Britt said there will be food available, but no toilet facilities, and the paddock is slightly difficult to access.
"If you have secateurs or clippers, bring them," she added - the stalks are much tougher than they look.
