Camellia Gardens, Sydney: 2 reviews and 10 photos
The gardens began as a project under the 1970 Captain Cook Bicentenary program, with the first plantings in 1969. Named after the late Professor E.G Waterhouse, a leading authority on camellias, the Garden today is a tranquil oasis. For a $1 donation you can pick up a map featuring Walks through the gardens from the Teahouse.
The walks meander that much that every time you move 20 metres it seems like you're in a totally different area.
Critics may have noted that the opening shot is of a rose and the second shot is actually of the rose garden in the gardens which features many different varieties and is tended by local floral societies who have an interest in same. The reason I included these is (a) because I like them and (b) because the camellias weren't in bloom at the time.
In pic 3 you can view the stream that filters enticingly through the gradens, adding that soothing splash of waters rushing through a forest.
That the gardens are mature is evidenced by the large fern in pic 4 while the bromeliad in the last pic is indicative of the wide variety of plants they have there.
