Road Trip, Day 6

Image
This duo were our alarm, this morning.

Another very cool start to the day but as the rain didn't arrive, we walked around the Botanical Gardens.

 Saw the Dahlia display, but I think it was nearly finished as it looked a bit sad. Some of the blooms were huge and there was a wide range of colours and styles on display. The Fern House seems to under-going renovation and was disappointing. Walked along the Avenue of Prime Ministers. This is bust of all Australian Prime Ministers, from Federation in 1901 to Tony Abbott. Malcolm Turnbull has to wait.

Also walked the Avenue of Giants. Sequoias, Californian Redwoods, have been planted and are huge. I did notice some smaller ones, planted to replace ones that have been damaged.

                                    Standing under the branches and looking up the trunk of a Redwood.

Morning tea at Pipers by the Lake and then Paul went back to the car and I went and took some photos of Lake Wendouree.
