Only 20 minutes drive from the CBD, The Auburn Botanical Gardens is tucked away in Sydney’s Western suburbs made up of 9 different parks and full of natural beauty.

The main attraction is the spectacular Japanese Garden, with a waterfall, decorative bridges and ornamental trees set around a large lake. It is exceptionally beautiful, especially when the cherry blossoms are blooming between mid-August and early September. Find out more about the amazing event here.
