A Short Jaunt In The Gardens

The Dunedin Botanic Garden has been open for 150 years this year. It happens to be my favourite place in Dunedin, even if the weather is bad, as it often is. The gardens are massive, so I decided to do a short photo journal of my 40 minute long tour of the lower half of them. I thought I’d just put a few of my favourite images here though. This will be followed by a photo journal of the upper half of the gardens for my next post.

  1. Good links, Ellie. I’ve never checked out the background information on the Botanic Garden website. I’m not looking forward to seeing the worm sculpture installed. I notice they are digging out an area in front of the visitors Centre and restaurant. Perhaps this is where the giant worm will be sited. I think the worm should be buried deep underground – after all, isn’t that their natural habitat?
