blue lotus water garden, yarra junction

Well, well. Mamma has found paradise. Once you step into the amazing gardens of the Blue Lotus Water Garden you get lost in a vast sea of majestic and lush greenery including pretty waterlilies and lotus flowers and banana palms.  The property covers 14 acres and was previously a market garden which has been transformed by Geoff and Yvonne Cochrane over 12 years ago.  There is plenty of idyllic spots to explore with lakes, ponds and lagoons, bridges to walk across,  so many lovely picnic spots AND a fantastic fairy garden for the kids.  Take a picnic or eat at the cafe (you must try the lotus root chips)  or cook up your own BBQ.  Don’t miss the greenhouse that houses the amazing rare plants - like the Giant Amazon Lilly!  There is also a gift shop and a nursery in the front to create your own mini lily paradise!

Mamma's special mention: You could head up the highway and continue to explore Warburton OR have a look at some more beautiful gardens in the east including Cloudehill or Alowyn Gardens
