A trip to the Botanical Gardens in Cairns, Queensland.

Flecker Botanical Gardens is a heritage-listed botanic garden in Cairns, Queensland, Australia. It was built from 1886 to 1960s.

Headed there after a rainy humid day in Winter 2016.  Had more photos but can't find them - perhaps deleted (:


Spathiphyllum (Peace Lily) and never have we seen a purple one - these were taken with my Sumsung Galaxy Edge 7.  Both these photos were taken in the covered in area.








Same flower as the above one.

  5. Phone cameras are just so good now. If I didn't have such trouble holding a phone still, I would probably give up on separate camera.

    1. A heavier camera seems to be easier to hold still...my phone hardly ever takes a blurry photo but I might have a steadier hand than you do.
      I'm sure it won't be long and many of us won't carry a camera as such - I will though if it's better than the phone.

  12. Great photos - I must confess I have given up on carrying a camera these days, I may go back to it in Thailand, but with images as clear as yours why would you not use the phone?
    Have a great week

  15. I always enjoy visiting botanical gardens and have done so in many countries, including the National Botanic Garden in Canberra. They are interesting and educational in their own right, to say nothing of beautiful, but they also harbour lots of birds.
