Auburn Botanical Gardens

Posted by redkoireviews on 12/02/2006

Red bridge in Japanese GardensWe tried to make a bit of walk of this by leaving the car at the end of Sixth St in Auburn and walking along the banks of Duck River to the gardens. However, Duck river is very infested with weeds and so was not a great walk.

The Gardens however where fantastic. The best area is definately the Japanese Garden. I has lovely ponds with large Koi, swans, zen gardens, waterfalls and is beautifully landscaped. Other setions include a pool of reflection, maze, scented garden, billabong, and bonsai collection. The ‘rainforest’ section isn’t quite convincing because, lets face it, Auburn is too dry and hot!

My main suggestion is to spend more time there than we did – bring a rug and have a picnic. It’s too restfull a place to zoom through it. Oh, and watch out for the swans – they’ll peck your feet if you don’t feed them!

My Rating: 3.5 Stars

    My partner and I absoutely love your blog and find many of your post’s to be
    precisely what I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to
    write content to suit your needs? I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on a lot of
    the subjects you write related to here. Again, awesome website!
