ABOUT: One of the main tourist attractions on the Bell’s Line of Road between Richmond and Bells (the through to Mount Victoria) these gardens are well worth a mid to late afternoon wander. As well as the obvious macro shots of flowers there are some great walks with views over the distant Grose and across Mount Hat, but also some wild forest trails with great ‘sun burst’ potential as in my shot here.

PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: A mix of moderate wide lenses for set scenes in the gardens plus a specialist macro lens. Tripod for garden foreground and distant views with bright skies – particularly off the decking of the main building at the top

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: A very well signposted attraction, map below.
