Lotus Flower Season

A world of water flowers and fun is waiting for you

 The Blue Lotus Water Garden is one of Australia’s most spectacular seasonal gardens. Each year the gardens holds two stunning floral events starting with the famous Lotus Flower Season (26th December to 20th March). This is followed by our second floral event, the beautiful Autumn Flower Season (21st March to mid-April).

During the Lotus Flower Season, visitors will experience the world’s most extensive collection of lotus flower varieties which produce millions of huge flowers spread over 14 acres of water gardens. Highlights include Lotus Lake and Lotus Wetlands with thousands of blooms each day, creating a virtual sea of flowers in every direction. A special feature is the Giants of the Amazon exhibit displaying one of the world’s largest waterlily species, Victoria Cruziana. The lily pads can get as big as a dinner table (1.5 metres in diameter).

Visitors will love exploring the tropical-themed gardens with its amazing array of exotic plants, garden exhibits, fountains, waterfalls, floral sculptures, walks and scenic vistas.
