Residents from Castledare have enjoyed a wonderful visit to Araluen Botanic Park to enjoy the beautiful gardens, which are particularly stunning in spring as the flowers are in full bloom.
The park has the perfect micro-climate for cultivating exotic and cool climate plants, with high rainfall and cool temperatures.
Villa resident Mary Hickling was among those who joined in on the trip and describes the gardens as “magical!”
“It really was wonderful and we all had such a lovely day,” she says. “The regular bus trips to places of interest are such a great asset for Castledare and especially nice for those residents who no longer drive.”
