Given how difficult it is for independent shops to survive, Dot's Flower Shoppe has been an impressive exception. Locals have been coming here for 30 years — whether looking for the perfect bouquet to cheer up a mate or with plans to organise a Pinterest-worthy party. The bouquets, all created by Dot's devoted team range from brilliant bunches of classic red roses to designer arrangements of Australian natives. And, if you have something in mind that you can't find in the store, all you have to do is ask. You'll find Dot's on busy Church Street, along Parramatta's busiest strip.
