Australian Botanic Gardens, Mount Annan

Spending three hours at the gardens, was not nearly enough time to appreciate the sheer beauty of the unique Australian flora. With 416 hectares of garden, there was no way three hours was long enough to explore the Jurassic Garden, stop at the restaurant and cafe for lunch or a drink, organise and enjoy a picnic or take an organised tour. Nor did I find the bird hide or Australian fauna. However, I visited in Spring and the gardens were at their most glorious.

With winding paths leading me into a new little garden with complementary colours, with red billybuttons and yellow of kangaroo paw and purple groundcovers and offset with silver foliage or pink and lilac scaevolea, grey foliage and white strawflower, offset with sandstone feature stones creating a natural scene. The gardens hug the hillside and take advantage of the glorious sunshine to show us their brilliant display.
