Araluen Botanic Park is an extraordinary garden in a breathtakingly beautiful bushland setting. Stroll through stoned pathways across the terraces that are lined by enormous stone pillars and shaded jarrah pergolas. View the circa 1930's log cabins located in each garden precinct and learn about Perths heritage and history on the sign panels. Located within 59 hectares of native Australian bushland, the developed gardens cover 14 hectares within various precincts. Each precinct features various exotic plant species that flourish in the cool micro climate of the Roleystone Perth Hills. Renowned for the annual tulip festival which takes place each springtime, where over 100,000 tulip bulbs put on the most spectacular show for the thousands of visitors who flock to catch a glimpse and capture the 'best' selfie with the colourful backdrops.
Some exciting but somewhat lesser known facts about Araluen is that the Park boasts an incredibly impressive internationally recognised collection of Camellias. Western Australia's largest rose collection containing species of original heritage roses circa 1800's. which are best viewed in late spring to late summer. The Tea Roses and many other magnificent blooms blossom as we head into the autumn months, which is the best time to enjoy the extensive collection of tea roses. Stinton Creek flows within the Park all year, heading north to south as it ends flowing into the Canning Dam. This is a real feature of a visit to Araluen Botanic Park and there is many photo opportunities from the various walking bridges.
Overall the Park flourishes amongst an undulating native backdrop of Eucalyptus, Marri and Blackbutt Trees, with collections of banksia, grass trees and man ferns amongst flowering blooms, it is an experience for the senses.
