Yesterday (15/12/16) we decided to visit the Botanical Gardens located at the base of Mount Coot-Tha. We’ve been here a few times before but knowing how beautiful the place was we decided to try and capture the natural beauty on my camera.
We started near the pond areas which are lined by purple flowers and filled with lily pads and various birds.
From here we headed into the paths that wound between a huge variety of plants and flowers. With cacti and succulents on one side and palm trees and ferns the other you really do forget that the CBD is just a 10 minute drive away.
When hearing or seeing anything about the Botanical Gardens the main thing that’s mentioned is the tropical dome. A half sphere nestled between nature filled with tropical plants in a controlled, humid environment. With its geometric glass roof it really does stand out and make quite a statement.
We then decided to drive up to the Mount Coot-Tha lookout to make the most of the impeccably clear day.
