Situated in the Perth hills Araluen Botanic Park showcases an unmatched collection of exotic and cool climate plants from other parts of Australia and the world. The Parks location is close to the coastal plain, however its topography, soil and climate set it apart and allow for growing a wide and unique range of ornamental plants.
Araluen is an internationally-acclaimed garden for particular species, including Camellias and Roses. Araluen’s Tea Roses drew acclaim through the highly respected US Rosa Mundi magazine. The 2008 Spring/Summer edition referred to Araluen as ‘…one of the finest collections of Tea Roses in the world reside…’ yet a key element to the garden is the natural flora of the northern and western parts of the Park. It is the view of the current custodians that these areas play a crucial role in the Araluen Garden experience.
