blue lotus water garden, yarra junction

Well, well. Mamma has found paradise. Once you step into the amazing oasis 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. On weekends and public holidays there are often visits and storytelling from the Flower Fairy Queen right here! There are also interactive activities including goldfish feeding, face painting and garden spotto all throughout the Gardens.

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!

The gang LOVE school holidays and Easter - CLICK HERE - to see what they have planned. There might just be some egg hunting!

Mamma's special mention: The trials are pram friendly and the kids will love exploring and stopping over the bridges (just to check for trolls of course). There is plenty of water about so close supervision is required at all times but you will love it.
