Golden Garden Season

Festivals and Celebrations

1 Apr 2022 to 18 Apr 2022 Annual Event

The Blue Lotus Water Garden located in the Yarra Valley holds it’s annual Golden Garden Season each April. This is when our summer gardens puts on a beautiful autumn display of perennial flowers and other wonderful natural attractions. And there is still plenty of lotus and waterlily flowers to see.

Featured Autumn garden attractions include:

14 acres of lakes, walking trails and gardens full of beautiful perennial Autumn flowers such as impatiens, sunflowers, salvias, bougainvillea and lots more.

The world’s largest waterlily in our Giant Amazon Waterlily Display has huge leaves 1.3-1.5m in diameter. The lily pads are at their maximum size in April, big enough to float a child on.

Kakadu Lagoon Display full of native Australian lotus and waterlily plants.

Go back to the time of the pharaohs and snap a pic of the rare Egyptian Blue Lotus Waterlily.

Take the Dragon’s Trail to Fantasy Falls, walk-though a field of golden lotus leaves to meet our friendly dragons, which appear to walk on water in the pond above the falls. A special highlight for children.

Perfectly located for a day trip, the Blue Lotus Water Garden has numerous picnic areas, shelters, barbecue facilities, onsite Lily Pond Café and Garden Ice-cream shop. There is also Australia’s best water plant nursery, great gift shop and Rod’s Garden Shop.
