Cherry Blossoms Festival, Auburn


How about Cherry Blossoms in August? Yes, it is possible when you live in Australia. As the winter is at the tail end  and the weather is no longer gloomy and chilly, you can see spring slowly creeping in. The Cherry blossoms trees on Sydney roadsides have started blooming along with Bird of Paradise, Wisteria and Crab apples. 

Last week I went to see the Cherry Blossom festival held in Auburn Botanic Gardens. This is only a two weekend event every year so you can imagine the crowd the garden attracts. There were different Japanese Dance performances, aroma wafting from food stalls and cosplay too. We had packed a picnic and sat near the Reflection pool to enjoy a sunny afternoon. The park was filled with giggles of girls dressed in Kimono, children running around and people with cameras and selfie sticks, capturing memories.

The Entry fees to the Park is $5.
Address - Auburn Botanical Garden, Chiswick Rd, Auburn NSW 2144
Visitors usually spend 2 hours in the park. Ample free parking is available near the garden, but might be difficult to find a spot on busy days.
