Time Out says

Discover this lush water lily garden just 90 minutes from Melbourne

Update: Blue Lotus Water Garden has reopened to the public. There will be two flower seasons over the 2020/2021 season. The Lotus Flower Season runs Dec 26-Mar 31 while the Golden Garden Season runs Apr 1-18. Follow the garden on Facebook for up-to-date info.

Blue Lotus is over 50,000 square metres in size and is covered by a multitude of water lilies and lotus flowers over dozens of ponds and two lakes. Take a stroll around the gardens and peek inside the four greenhouses that grow rare plants, including the Giant Amazon Lily, the world’s largest lily species. 

Even though it's only a 90-minute drive from Melbourne, the gardens feel thoroughly tropical thanks to the palms, lagoons and waterfall (yep, there's even a waterfall). Aside from the huge water lily display, Blue Lotus also features a colourful selection of perennial flowers on land. It's all a bit magical, an element amplified by the fairy queen visits for kids on weekends and public holidays.

This top-notch garden is what they call a seasonal display garden, meaning it’s only open for a very short time throughout the year, often between late December and early April.
