From the Sydney Cherry Blossom festival to a sunken rose garden and a delicate array of native and foreign blooms, this very special 9.2 hectares of lush greenery is like another world. Wander through vibrant colours, sniff the flowers and meet the geese, with this pocket of flora having something fabulous and flowery on at every stage during the year.
Ah, spring. That gorgeous time of year when everything explodes with colour, fragrant smells and terrible, terrible hayfever. Delightful. If you can overlook the latter, you’re probably wondering where you can get the best look at spring’s crowning glory: flowers. In Sydney, flowers are a natural and accepted part of every one of our seasons (winter wattle, cherry blossoms, jacarandas, we’re looking at you), but, it’s no secret that spring is really when our floral friends come out to play.
We’ve put together a list of the best places to see flowers in Sydney and NSW, so all you have to do is grab your best gingham rug, your camera, and (possibly) some antihistamines, and hit the road.
In the immortal words of Meryl Streep: “Florals for spring. Groundbreaking”. We tend to agree.
