Orange Botanic Gardens: Captivating All Year Round


We recently had the pleasure of visiting, Orange Botanic Gardens, a sprawling 17-hectare natural site that showcases a captivating collection of both indigenous and exotic plants. We were visiting at the beginning of the Australian Spring, so the transition from later winter plants to emerging spring blossoms was pretty heady! We were pleasantly surprised by the expansive gardens which had sprung into spring vibrancy since a previous visit at the start of winter.
