I like to stroll through the botanical garden in Wollongong at different times of the year. I even had my wedding ceremony on the pontoon at the pond many years ago. My grandkids also love to go there for a day when they visit me.

Well cared for gardens, resting in the coastal winter, but worth a walk through the grounds. Lots of birds including brush turkeys busy in the garden beds.
