They look lovely. I always enjoy Botanic Gardens and native wildlife just adds to the pleasure.
Always a joy to visit any Botanic Gardens, big shady trees and seats, all manner of things to see.
beautiful gardens! I love botanical gardens; I need to seek them out more. Thanks for that reminder/nudge!
A lovely walk to see most of it, depends on how big the gardens are.
It's a lovely garden. I like the pretty little bird and the creek with the rocks. Is that a tortoise or a turtle? I think tortoise but sometimes I'm not so sure.
I reckon it's a tortoise and they go on land more where as turtles are inclined to stay in the water - that's what I read.It is a nice garden all of it.
Such a beautiful garden. There would be lovely to walk.
Was lovely to walk around part of it, it's rather large, nice place to take a picnic lunch as we saw a few doing that.
That is a great fountain, and the small windows to the park look great too.
I was somewhat fascinated by by the fountains, the 'weed' in the water is a pest we had it in our fishpond long ago - yes it grew in our cooler climate, but then I didn't find Hervey Bay that warm in winter.
Quite a long drive for you but very pretty. I enjoyed your photos very much. We have a Botanical Garden about 30 minutes away but have not felt like walking the grounds yet.
Most Botanic Gardens are rather large and takes a long time to walk around them, we usually don't go all around.
I admire the big turtle we do not have them here.
Didn't know that.
Your photos are super! What a great place to visit! Happy weekend!
Thanks Christine - you have a good weekend too .
The Botanical Gardens appear to have a touch of Japanese about them.
Yes Rosemary you are correct, that Japanese area was down one end of the garden, however, wasn't impressed have seen much nicer.
I like the turtle--- very flat shell!
Yes Bill, there were several of them in the water swimming about.
Wonderful photos. It surely must have been a gorgeous day.
The weather that day was indeed lovely, warmish about the time we ventured into the gardens.
Most impressive, Margaret.Seems to have a Japanese theme - a la Kyoto.Colin
One area was the Japanese garden but wasn't impressed at all - have seen better.
They look like a nice spot for a picnic.
Indeed, several people were there doing exactly that.
Sure glad you took me on tour. I bet one could take picture all day.Coffee is on
In some places I could definitely do that :)
Beautiful garden! Seems to have different and interesting spaces!
There are sections which is nice for a sub tropic garden.
I see too many greens every day throughout the year, love to see how this garden looks like during the other season!
Well it's a change to see a winter garden in the subtropics.
I have visited some that other botanical garden, in my country. The photos you have selected it's a huge hit, because of their framing and beauty.Kisses
These look lovely gardens, I enjoyed all of your photographs.All the best Jan
Thanks Jan, it's pleasing you enjoy
