Summer is one of the most peaceful of the seasons at Araluen, with ornamental flower beds and expanses of lawn, surrounded by the shade of thousands of native and exotic trees.
This year, 3 different varieties of sunflower – Yellow Empress, Bronze Shades and Dwarf – are lighting up the Centenary Lawn at the top of the Rose Garden. Please note this is not a garden festival; visitors can simply admire our small, but beautiful, display of sunflowers and other beautiful blooms around the Park.
The sunflowers are expected to be blooming for the first two to three weeks of the month, depending upon weather conditions.
We recommend visiting during the first half of January for the best view – they are guaranteed to brighten your day and put a smile on anyone’s face!
