Tulip Top Gardens
Back in Canberra today to visit the Tulip Top Gardens. Not to be confused with ‘Floriade’. This is a private garden open to the public in Spring each year. It has some spectacular displays and the crowds are way less than ‘Floriade’ and you can easily park onsite. The gardens are open until October 16, 2022.

Camden Park House
Yesterday we spent a lovely day exploring Camden Park House and gardens located at Menangle NSW. This is the first time in 2 years it has been open to the general public. It is still a private home and is owned by descendants of John and Elizabeth Macarthur both famous in their own right as pioneers of the Australian Merino wool industry. There was a tour of the home but unfortunately we were not permitted to take photos inside the house. But there are acres of gardens to explore and lots of photo opportunities. 🙂

The Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney
Yesterday we did the ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour at the Sydney Botanical Gardens. It was a great tour of the glasshouses where they keep their special and rare collections. Paul, our guide, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour went for just under 2 hours and cost $25 + booking fee. Well worth the money in my opinion. You can book through their website. Tours are only on Wednesday’s during August and September.

Museum of Sydney
Unrealised Sydney! A great exhibition of what Sydney may have been. Such an interesting exhibition showing the proposed developments that never happened. What was originally proposed for the Rocks area of Sydney was nothing short of shocking! So glad it never went ahead. It also showcases the short list of proposals for the Sydney Opera house site. I’m glad we got what was finally chosen for Benelong point. 🙂 #museumofsydney #unrealisedsydney
