Kawarra Native Plant Garden - Kalorama,

Kawarra Native Plant Garden, Kalorama, in the Dandenong Ranges, 35 km east of Melbourne, is a beautiful hideaway in which to experience Australian Native Plants.

The landscaped garden covers about 4 ha with meandering paths, restful seating in amongst the plants and trees, and wonderfully helpful staff. As a visitor wanders the gardens they will notice that most of the plants are numbered. At the end of each section of the garden there is a map and key. In this way it is possible to identify the plants along the way.

Not all of the garden has been landscaped. A small portion has been set aside in its natural state with many native orchids, trees and plants indigenous to the Dandenong Ranges. The canopy trees are the soaring Grey Gums and Messmate and the rest of the garden nestles beneath these impressive trees.

I visited this delightful garden on August 1 2007, exploring the tracks, paths, and pools
