Spring into Your Garden

Spring has blossomed at the Australian Botanic Garden with one of the largest display of Western Australian Paper Daisies outside of WA. These vibrantly coloured flowers  are commonly seen in bright colours of pink, yellow and white and look stunning in mass display like the annual display here at the Australian Botanic Garden each year.

Over half a million seeds have been planted to produce a vibrant display of pink, white and yellow blooms that will be on display from September until mid October.

But the paper daisies aren't the only part of the display. This year some giant bee sculptures have buzzed into the Connections Garden along with a myriad of other beautiful Australian natives all out in flower until the end of November.

Photographers, both professional and amateur will delight at the stunning backdrop these flowers afford.

And while you're visiting the Garden, why not book in for one of the free walking tours around the Connections Garden running every Friday or a paid drive tour around the whole Garden. For information on tours or to book, contact the Visitor Centre on 02 4634 7935.
