Dandenong Ranges Botanical Garden

Today we went for a little outing to the Dandenong Ranges Botanical Garden. It’s a beautiful garden located just near Olinda in the Dandenong Ranges.

I’ve been in Melbourne for 7.5 years and frequented Olinda and Sassafras more than any other place in Victoria, yet didn’t realise the gardens were there!

At the moment its the middle of ‘Summer’, which I say like that because the weather has been very hit and miss with the sunshine, rain and the bushfires but there were plenty of flowers out. I can only imagine how beautiful it would be in the Autumn and Spring.

I’ve uploaded a few photos, there was an Echidna. For the record I kept a distance away with my zoom lens, however it walked right up to me!
