A magical experience for kids this coming Easter

The Blue Lotus Water Gardens is a magical place not to be missed. An unexpected oasis of beauty, it will take your breath away. It's fully equipped with all you need for a great family day out. There's a grab-and-go food station, a cafe, lots of seating in idyllic spots, and a playground and more for the children. Only open for approximately 3.5 months of the year, this year is coming to a close on the 10th of April (Easter weekend) and it would be a shame to miss it, especially if you've never been. It's a definite must-see for the bucket list.

This Easter, do something completely different and treat your family to Easter Fun at the Gardens from Sat 8 to Mon 10 April 2023 (operating hours 10am to 5pm) at 2628 Warburton Highway, Yarra Junction. Look for the pink flags out front for the entrance. It's best to get your tickets online (Adult $21, Snr/Pension $18.50) as long weekend holiday periods are its busiest and it would be a shame to miss out on tickets at the gate. Do note ticket prices are for admission only and do not include Easter activities, which are free. Also of note, a Child Ticket is only available to children aged 0-15 years and must be accompanied by an adult with a paid ticket. Child Egg Hunt tickets include garden admission and entry to 1 egg hunt session only. Child Egg Hunt tickets ($9 inc. egg hunt, storybook show & garden admission) are limited and must be booked online, so get in early.
