We went here with out 2 children. Value for money wasn't the greatest. Definitely once you've seen one lotus you've seen them all. Thought we would try something different as we were in the area to waste some time. Nothing special

My wife and I visited this place on a Wednesday morning at 10 am. There were very few visitors and we were alone for most of the time during our walk across the entire Garden. Excellent for social distancing.

Blue Lotus Water Garden spans over 50,000 square meters, with dozens of ponds, two lakes, several fountains and walking tracks.

It features the Giant Amazon Waterlilies, Kakadu Lagoon Native Waterlily display, Tropical World complex, Claude Monet Waterlily display, Monet's Lake Bridge Walk, Lotus Lake, Lotus Wetlands, Golden Lotus display, Little Yarra River Trail, Flower Fairy Garden, Monet's Rotunda and much more.

We brought our own lunch and coffee from home and had our lunch at one of the many tables and benches that has undercover from the sun. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this spectacular place.

Blue lotus water lily park was amazing. We spent almost half a day admiring the blooms and enjoyed their snacks at the outlet. It was a rare experience to see so many species of water lilies in bloom and many other water plants on display. Some had crazy colours and petal arrangements. It was a day well spent.

Wow. These gardens are impressive. Although I would not have visited if it was not for my wife, I'm impressed.

I would imagine we will return with the family for a pick nick.

the beautiful gardens are well worth a visit, everything was so well kept, and plenty of seating all around which makes it so easy for the older people. The gift shop had some really lovely items ,not the usual tatty items in many gift shops. Will go again. so tranquil around the lily ponds.

This place is huge. 14 acres of beauty and tranquility. We went in March whilst still a fair few blooms are in the season is coming to a close. Good explanations about the types of lotus. Easy to get around. Picnic and rest spots in abundance. Would definitely recommend.

What a delight to find these beautiful gardens . So well laid out, looked after and a real treat to walk around . Also wheel chair friendly .
My only negative is in the restaurant/cafe is loud 80’s music playing which completely ruins the ambience of the gardens .
Would be lovely to sit there with a cuppa listening to some peaceful music like bhuddist singing bowls or birds, running water etc .

This is Garden Heaven for anyone interested in gardening or photography of plants. There are many large ponds with magnificent blooms as well as loads of other colourful plants and majestic trees which complement the setting. The facilities were brilliant - heaps of food and drink options, including multiple water stations around the garden, bbqs and a picnic area. Plenty of seating and I particularly liked the gazebos which are scattered unobtrusively around the main lake. There are also several toilet blocks inside and outside the venue. The paths are gravel so I recommend good walking shoes and some are rather steep though there was always another alternative path to access each area. The signage was very good and although the garden covers a very large area, I never felt lost. I would also recommend to visit on a bright, sunny day so the flowers are open in all their glory. Truly spectacular.

Very unassuming beginning. Large car park and then an entrance. Is this the right place?

Once through the entry the place is HUGE and has a number of excellent tracks including one above the water through the flowers.

And what a lot of flowers there are.

Plenty of information signs as well which is a bonus.
