Our Pretty Adventure to Araluen

On the lookout for a venue (plus a hint of boredom and sense of adventure) we decided to take a trip up to the very pretty "Araluen"...which if you don't know, is the most beautiful heritage garden in the hills of Roleystone. The gardens are run by volunteers and they restore the old grounds to their former glory of the 1930's. At this time of the year (August, September) is their annual tulip season (which I had forgotten all about until I looked it up) which means the grounds are filled with a sea of flowering tulips, bringing tourists and seniors from miles in big comfy coaches. We arrived about 4.30pm so it was cooling down and the droves of picnickers had packed up and gone home. We paid our $4 each to get in, grabbed a pack of prices for weddings and set off for a wander...
