WINCH HOUSE
Mr Charles Winch was one of the world's foremost breeders of tropical waterlilies. For over 70 years he bred over 600 different hybrid waterlilies 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 greenhouse to Mr Winch's beautiful lilies.

GIANT AMAZON LILY
See one of the World's largest water lilies Victoria cruziana  with giant lily pads that regularly grow over 5ft in diameter and can grow large enough to support the weight of a small child. In 2015 we grew a leaf that measured 1.7m in diameter and was the largest leaf in Australia.
If your here on the right day you also 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 greenhouse that replicates the plants natural environment in the tropics of South America and features many other rare tropical plants.
THE GARDEN
The Blue Lotus Water Garden is a tropical style water garden spread over 50,000 sqm (14 acres) covered in tens of thousands of stunning flowers. The garden features two lakes and dozens of ponds, 15 ornate bridges, three large NEW sculpture fountains, over 2km of pathways lined with Banana palms and other ornamental plants.

The lakes and ponds contain a large range of LOTUS & WATERLILY plants all producing magnificent flowers.

Large greenhouse displays feature a range of rare and spectacular plants that you won't see anywhere else in Australia like our famous Giant Amazon Lily.

The garden contains many facilities for all ages including a new family BBQ area with a kids Fairy Garden. Please click on the Facilities tab above to find out more.
FLOWER FAIRY GARDEN - New in 2016
We are in the process of helping the fairies move from their previous home to a new garden. The Flower Fairy Garden is a dedicated family area with 7 picnic huts and a park BBQ. The fairy garden will feature more fairies, giant mushrooms, fairy houses (cubby) and flowering plants.
RARE PLANTS PAVILION
New to the garden in 2015 will be the Rare Plants Pavilion full of rare and spectacular plants that Geoff has collected from northern Australia including the Pink Gigantea Waterlily. It will also houses the night flowering tropical plants that produce some of the most beautiful flowers on earth. These water lilies open when the light conditions are low (cloudy days) or at night. Also displayed is the Egyptian Blue Lotus Waterlily that comes from Nile River system.

The garden beds inside the greenhouse hold unique tropical plants including New Guinea Fig, Medinillas, Heliconias and a few rare flowering vines.
ANCIENT 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.

THE CROCODILE PLANT PAVILION
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 leaves upto 1m in diameter. It's flower is small but spectacular. In India the locals cook and eat the seed that's said to be like popcorn.
