Geoffs Life After Work !

Hervey Bay Botanical Gardens and our First visit after 3 yrs !!

Lived here for 3 yrs and still discovering places !! 3 mins drive from us is the Hervey Bay Botanical Garden and we have never ventured into this park before SO this morning we did !! and we were very pleasantly surprised at this wild and well kept garden over 26 hectares of bushland ( I have NO idea how big that is ! but we seemed to walk for miles !!)  BBQs are strategically placed around Altho tis mid winter here the undergrowth is spectacular and I will do another review when in full bloom during Summer months (probably Febuary) PLUS its a freebie !! Pathways have been introduced so the visitor will get a good idea of what life before humans was like ( Sorry NO Dinosaurs etc) There are lots of photograph opportunities and ample parking PLUS a cafeteria within the grounds that over looks a lake and good bird life…Well worth a visit .

The tired old log with red soil on it is residue left by white ants who have eaten most of it away ( Didgeridoos are made from tree branches hollowed out by white ants )
