Blue Lotus Water Garden is a world class 'seasonal' display garden of over 50,000 square metres in size, famous for thousands of lotus flowers, waterlilies and Australia's biggest waterlily, the Giant Amazon Lily.

The garden has been developed in a 'tropical theme' resembling an exotic Asia paradise, right in the heart of the Yarra Valley. It features more than 40 ponds, lagoons and lakes all covered in thousands of floral blooms. Spectacular sculpture fountains protrude from the lakes intensifying the visual display. Towering banana trees and reed covered huts line the shores of the waterways, offering shade on those warm summer days. Mass plantings of perennial flowers transform the garden into a sea of colour. It is recommended that you allow a minimum of one hour to explore the gardens.

Feature displays: Giant Lily Tropical Complex, Monet’s Lake, Lotus Lake and Flats, The Lucky Golden Lotus, Little Yarra River Native Garden, 2000 year old Oga Lotus and the amazing Flower Fairy Garden. 

The garden contains easy-to-walk pathways, ornamental bridges, dozens of picnic huts, barbecues, garden seats and shelters, kids’ fairy garden and play area, disabled amenities and parking, Lily Pond Cafe, Garden Kiosk, Retail Plant Nursery, Gift and Garden Shop.
