THE GARDEN
The Blue Lotus Water Garden is a tropical style water garden spread over 15 acres featuring two lakes, three dams and dozens of ponds all planted with tens of thousands of LOTUS flowers, water lilies and other rare, exotic and native plants.
Access around the garden is via well maintained paths connected via ornate bridges with plenty of shady shelters and seating to take in the views.
Immerse yourself in a sea of flowers, rest under a banana palm or explore one of the many feature attractions like the Giant Amazon Lily, Little Yarra Adventure Trail, Crocodile Pavilion, Oga Lotus Garden or the Night Lily House.

GIANT AMAZON LILY
See the World's largest water lilies Victoria cruziana & Victoria amazonica with giant lily pads that regularly grow over 4ft in diameter and can grow large enough to support the weight of a small child. If your here on the right day you may see the giant lily in flower. The plant produces huge flowers over 30cm in size that open white then gradually turn pink before dying within 48 hours.

Our new Amazon House is a purpose built glasshouse that replicates the plants natural environment in the tropics of South America and features many other rare tropical plants.

LITTLE YARRA ADVENTURE TRAIL - New in 2014
Explore and learn about our own patch of native rain forest along the banks of the Little Yarra River. You will see huge Gum Trees up to 100ft tall plus many other beautiful native ferns and plants. You may even spot a platypus playing in the river or a koala having a nap in the branch of a tree.

The trail features educational boards, well maintained paths and seating, ornate bridges, viewing platforms and boardwalks.
THE CROCODILE PLANT PAVILION - New in 2014
See the huge Euryale ferox lily that produces massive spiny leaves with barbs and spikes on both sides. That's why we have named it the "Crocodile Plant" because if you touch it, it bites you!

The Euryale ferox is a native lily from the tropics of Eastern Asia and produces beautiful flowers. In India the locals cook and eat the seed that's said to be like popcorn.
NIGHT LILY HOUSE
If you’re visiting the garden on a cloudy or rainy day, then the Night Lily House will amaze you. See some of the most beautiful flowers on earth that only open when the light conditions are low or at night. Be amazed at the collection of rare night flowering water lilies and other plants you won’t see anywhere else.

OGA LOTUS GARDEN
The ancient Oga Lotus was around during the dinosaurs but disappeared until Dr Ichiro Oga found 3 seeds during an archaeological dig in the Hanamigawa River, Chiba, Japan in 1951. Dr Oga germinated one of these seeds believed to be 2000 years old or the oldest known lotus in the world.

We germinated seed progeny of this Oga Lotus and planted it in a Japanese style garden.

WINCH HOUSE
Mr Charles Winch was one of the world's foremost breeders of tropical water lilies. For over 70 years he bred over 600 different hybrid water lilies at his property in NSW. His tropical hybrids are signified by large colourful flowers and amazing
variegated leaves.

At the garden we have dedicated an entire glass house to Mr Winch's beautiful lilies.
