The Arboretum is situated on 30 hectares, in between Tailem Bend and Wellington here in South Australia. It is conservation based and houses a huge range of Australias threatened flora. The site was established and is maintained by a group of Volunteers and is managed by the Coorong District Council. It also has support from Community Groups, Businesses and Individuals.
I was just in awe of the smorgasbord of beautiful plants to admire - Banksias, Hakeas, Grevilleas, Eucalypts, Erimophilas and so many more. There were New Holland Honey Eaters in abundance and I believe there are many more birds that can be spotted. It is amazing how much beauty can be grown in what was once a weed infested and eroded sand drift. What a wonderful job these clever people have done and continue to do with this
incredible native garden..... I take my hat off to them.
I came across so much inspiration for my botanical work and have popped a few snaps below of just some of the beauties I discovered. I can't wait until my next visit!!!
