Gorgeous Cherry Blossoms at Tulip Top Gardens


It’s that time of the year when Cherry Blossoms adorn the roadsides in Australia. Spring is my favorite season here. The weather is just perfect for any kind of outing and the landscape is beautified by numerous variety of flora.

Like the last two years, this September too, I went to the stunning Tulip Top Gardens in Canberra, known for their gorgeous collection of Tulips and fascinating colors of Cherry Blossoms. They open their gardens every spring from mid September to mid October, for everyone to enjoy the bewitching beauty of nature.

We started quite late from Sydney and reached Canberra just before midnoon. On each visit, I find myself stuck at the entrance, mesmerised by the beauty of the place. Doesn’t the entrance look magical!!




This section of the garden is called waterfall.




You can find Cherry Blossoms of almost every color. I didn’t even know that so many varieties exist.





Since it was a bright and sunny day, the yellow blooms looked even more striking that day.



At the end of the garden, there’s a path that goes uphill. Beautiful pink and white cherry blossoms were blooming along the side lanes. From the top of the hill, you get a stunning view of the landscape around Canberra.








The white Cherry Blossoms looked like snowflakes settled on the trees.



We spent the afternoon in the garden, treated ourselves to free tea/coffee, egg sandwiches and some live music. Apart from the flowers, what I love the most about the garden is it doesn’t get too crowded, thus maintaining the aesthetic feel of the place. 


Hope I will be back next year too.

  1. It's lovely! I don't like Canberra that much but I wish I could see this when I visited. I especially like the cherry blossoms as I haven't had the chance to see them yet. It's the Jacarandas season at the moment in Brisbane, I'm loving it and taking hundreds of pix! Enjoy Spring 😀

  2. These views are gorgeous! I never would have thought of Canberra as a top flower destination, but I love finding slightly off-the-beaten-path spots for cherry blossom viewing.

  3. I'm from Australia and had no idea cherry blossoms and tulips were in Canberra! I will definitely take a trip there at some point. Beautiful!

  4. Your photographs are beautiful! For some reason I’d never have thought to find these kind of gardens in Australia, so it’s great to see something different! I love cherry blossom too, especially if the wind blows, it looks like confetti falling!

  5. The photos you took are gorgeous! Would you recommend going around now (Oct-Nov?) is that when springtime is in Cranberra? The colors are so beautiful!

  6. You have so many beautiful shots in this post. I love your shot of the white Cherry Blossoms. It really does look like snow flakes!

  7. This post is just GORGEOUS. I bookmarked the Tulip Top Garden SO quick after reading this post. Wow, so vibrant!

  8. Wow Raj- I mean wow!! I was waiting to see these pics and am not disappointed. Just glowing in envy as I so badly want to see it for myself too!!

  9. What lovely foliage! Def very happy spring colors! I must come to this place if I'm in down under during the spring season!

  10. Is it just me or do we have nothing like these gardens in India? I mean, they are so beautiful and so well maintained.

  11. This is breathtakingly beautiful. We hardly get to see these bright hues around here so this one makes me long for a trip to someplace away from the incessant rains of Bangalore! I'm so glad you're sharing these beautiful pics so we can at the very least see them and enjoy! 🙂

  12. What a splendid collection of photographs, Raj! Absolutely adore cherry blossoms. They adorn the cover of my Kindle too! I do wish I could come and see Australia soon. Maybe when I turn 40 next year 🙂

  13. That is beautiful. I'm so happy that I saw that. It is autumn here. I miss the gentle beauty of springtime. Thank you for sharing it with me.

  14. This is awesome. I'm from this city and have never got out to see the gardens. Hopefully this will change soon 🙂
