Blue Lotus Water Garden

Just outside of Melbourne and only open between December and April Annually 

The nursery and gardens officially opened in 2006.The garden has now grown to cover over 50,000 square metres (14 acres) featuring thousands of exotic and native flowering plants featuring waterlilies, lotus & other rare plants. It also features dozens of ponds and two lakes all connected by walking tracks and 15 ornate bridges. Other attractions include four greenhouses that grow rare plants such as the world’s largest lily species, the spectacular Giant Amazon Lily – Victoria cruziana.

See the World’s largest water lilies growing in our new Tropical World greenhouse complex. We have two Giant Waterlilies on display, the Victoria cruziana and Victoria longwood hybrid. These waterlilies can grow lily pads over 2 metres in diameter (big enough to support the weight of a child).

In 2015 we grew a leaf that measured 1.7m in diameter and was the largest leaf recorded in Australia. This year we hope to grow one over 2m in a brand new pond.

And If your here on the right day you may see the giant lilies huge flower. The flower only lasts two days and changes colour from white to pink almost while you watch it.

Lotus Lake

Located at the end of the main walking track is our second largest lake which holds 8 million litres of water and a virtual sea of lotus flowers. We call it Lotus Lake because it produces the most lotus flowers in the garden with over 10,000 pink & white blooms each summer.

The track winds all around the lake offering amazing views of the flowers and nearby mountains. New gardens have been planted along the track with a range of perennial flowering plants and banana palms. Shelters and rotundas offer places to rest or have a picnic.
