Blue Lotus Water Garden 2019–20
The sprawling Yarra Valley garden is opening its doors to the public for lotus flower season.
The end of the year is hurtling closer, which means it's almost time for the fleeting annual lotus flower season to kick off once again. And, for the Blue Lotus Water Garden to throw open its gates and show off its brand new blooms.
Open to the public only from December 26 until April 13, the lush landscaped grounds boast a collection of ponds, lakes and lagoons, which all come alive for these few months of the year, jam-packed with thousands of flowering lotus and waterlilies.
You can wander the gardens through the lotus-filled waterways and flower beds in full-boom, with over three kilometres of pathways to explore. See the stunning 500-metre-long Monet lake, carpeted with over 70 varieties of water lily — including a collection of the artist's original flowers — then wander over the Japanese Pond's red bridge to catch a glimpse of flowers spawned from one of the world's oldest known lotus blooms.
There's even an onsite cafe and ice cream kiosk to fuel your flower-filled adventures.
Blue Lotus Water Garden is open from 10am–5pm daily.
