Ticket Prices


The Blue Lotus Water Garden is one of Australia’s largest private gardens and is not supported or associated with any government body. Therefore we need to charge fees to recover the costs of maintaining and developing all the attractions and facilities of such a large tourist attraction.

NOTE: NO Ticket is required to access the Retail Plant Nursery, Rod’s Garden Shop or the Gift Shop. However, the seasonal cafe & kiosk are located INSIDE the garden and a ticket is required to access these hospitality facilities.
