The Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens

The Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens, near the Piccadilly Valley in the beautiful Mount Lofty Ranges of South Australia, feature displays of cool temperate climate plants. Although perhaps best visited during spring and autumn (to see stunning displays of magnolias, rhododendrons, camellias and roses) the gardens are a magnificent display at any time of the year.
These photos were taken in June (the beginning of winter in Australia).

Bushland Park, Lobethal, SA, Australia.

>

Bushland Park is located just outside of Lobethal on the Kenton Valley Road.
It has a picnic area with a playground over looking a lake and walking trails
with a great deal of flora and fauna.

Lobethal Bushland Park provides habitat for a diverse range of flora and fauna, including Rare Maiden Hair Fern and Leafy Greenhood Orchids. The Native Orchid Society has catalogued 33 species of native orchid, some of which were thought to be extinct. Within the Park there are up to 100 bird species and 270 indigenous (native) plant species. 15% of the flora are rare and vulnerable, including some species that are not found outside the park. During the 19th and early 20th century, before reticulated water was available to the towns in the Onkaparinga Valley, two reservoirs in a 118 hectare property supplied water to the town of Lobethal and its major industry the Onkaparinga Woolen Mills. Early in 1982 the land was declared surplus to the requirements of the E & WS Department, and it was offered to the District Council of Onkaparinga In December 1986 Lobethal Bushland Park was officially opened by the Governor Sir Donald B Dunstan.
