Rolling down the hill

Araluen botanical gardens is a must see for any visitor to Western Australia. It is breathtakingly beautiful & a nice place to unwine in nature. Located in the hills of Roleystone. Come take a (virtual) stroll with me…

Thats 2 thirds of our wonderful family playing teacups & getting ready for our picnic. (PS. Daddy dressed lil K-bear & thats why his nappy is showing as the overalls are too small, no daddy thats not how it’s meant to look!)

And here is the other 2 thirds of our wonderful family. Partner Mr L is telling K-bear about all the work daddies do (just like in the book!).

This is my favourite part of Araluen. It is the first thing that welcomes you into these gorgeous gardens.

Venturing up the steep heights into the grove of the forgotten are some mini-waterfalls. Nothing like soaking up the traquility of waterfalls. They have such a calming effect.

A tiled Australian flag marks the grove of the forgotten.

There are plenty of hikes & walks around the gardens to go on, to explore every nook & cranny of this 59 hectare garden would take atleast a couple visits. (Take note its not an easy thing with a 10kg plus baby on the hip). A restaurant & giftshop lie at the top of the hill so bring plenty of stamina to walk up.

Burnt orange leaves everywhere. We are a month or so early before all the pretty flowers are blooming.

The first flower of the season blooming & the promise of many things to come. I will be back to update on all the roses, tulips, rhondodendroms (& many more) once they are in full bloom. Its truly a sight not to be missed.
