Blue Lotus Water Garden: a beautiful 14-acre leafy retreat at Yarra Junction

Every summer, just after Christmas, the Blue Lotus Water Garden in Yarra Junction opens up for public viewing.

This terrific made-made attraction is a stunning-14 acre oasis filled with lily pads. Walk through the ponds of the Blue Lotus Water Garden via wooden bridges taking in the attraction's lush greenery. The gardens are made up of both native and exotic (Giant Amazon) lilies.

At the front desk, pick up an eye spy sheet and see if you can tick off all the objects. This is a great activity to do with the kids.

There is a sweet little playground for children to stop by complete with a wee fairy garden to captivate young minds.

Pick up a rainbow umbrella to borrow for the day should you feel the need for a colourful rain or sun shade.

Take a picnic and stop by one of the many under cover gazebos positioned by the water's edge otherwise there's a cafe on site to stop by for refreshments.

Visit at the weekend and you might catch the storytelling Flower Fairy Queen.

The entry costs to the Blue Lotus Water Garden at Yarra Junction are $20 for adults and free for children.

Well worth a stop if you're in the area and if you are heading out that way, you can't miss the Redwood Forest in Warburton.

Be aware the Blue Lotus Water Garden at Yarra Junction is seasonal. The gardens are in bloom until April but it is better if you visit earlier in the season.
