Araluen, a wonderful treasure set in a lush secluded valley in the Perth Hills, is a botanical park known for its tulip showing in the Spring known as the ?Yates Springtime in Araluen?. Along with the tulips, native wildflowers can be seen throughout the year as well as roses and other blooms. You maybe lucky and also see a kangaroo or wallaby on your walks. The Gardens are shaded by the original planted tress of Liquidambar, Brush Box, Ash, Manna Gums, Queensland Black Bean, Bay Tree, Iron Bark, Holly to name but a few. You will also see loads of wisteria, rhododendrons and Camellia bushes. Of course the most notable attraction at Araluen is the Tulips? here you will find scattered beds of tastefully co-ordinated coloured blooms. During the winter months, volunteers are encouraged to come and help with the plantings of the bulbs along with other annuals and plants which bloom from August through to October.
