An enjoyable day out. Educational and a wonderful resource of Australian flora. Well labelled plants and map help identify plants and offer different habitats within the parklands.

Detoured here on way from Wellington to Orange. I am a native plant enthusiast so it was very interesting to me. Worthwhile for anyone interested in WA flora who can't get to WA. Lots of unusual plants. Too big to walk, really need to drive...More
