Blue Lotus Water Gardens

by Lorraine A (follow)
'As pretty as a picture' is probably the best way to describe the Blue Lotus Water gardens when the flowers are in full bloom. Shades of hazy blues and greens from the distant mountains, a red bridge crossing over 'Monet's Lake', and a stunning array of pink lotus flowers gently floating on the surface make up part of the picture seen below.



This massive private garden comprises of 5 hectares in total with over 2 kilometres of pathways, including the 750m 'River Trail Walk', a kiosk, retail nursery and gift shop.



The kids will have a fun time trying to find all 10 bridges and 9 islands located within the Blue Lotus Water Gardens. My kids really enjoyed the fairy garden and seeing the enormous and aptly named 'Giant Amazon Lily'. The Giant Amazon lily pads reach a staggering 1.7m in diameter!

Although there is a kiosk/cafe, you will also find plenty of BBQ's (coin operated from memory) and picnic tables throughout the garden. We weren’t organised enough to pack our own picnic, so we ended up a great little cafe/bakery just down the road.




The garden is open from late December through to the start of April and is at its best from late January to the end of February. For more information, visit Blue Lotus Water Gardens website here, or for my full review and a list of other things to do in the area, click here.
