Eurobodella Regional Botanical Gardens

A short drive from Batemans Bay the Eurobodella Regional Botanical Gardens are a great way to spend a couple of hours. Entry is free and the Gardens are a wonderful combination of natural bushland and manicured gardens. The gardens are set up to allow wheelchair and pram access which makes it a great place for everyone to visit. 

You can enjoy a range of walks from easy to medium with the longest around 2 kilometres. There's a forest walk track which wanders through natural bushland and along the edge of a weir.

The Aboriginal Heritage Walk was interesting and educational. As an example the black wattle (bidhudhu) signalled  that the blackfish would be biting. Like many ancient cultures they used plants as medicine and food. and from what we've learnt about aboriginal culture and their love and care of country (the land) we think they have always been amazing environmentalists.

Bird life was amazing: we heard lots and saw a range of the birds they mention are in the gardens. 


We ended our visit enjoying a coffee at the cafe where this bird paid us a visit.
