ABOUT THE GARDEN
Situated in the Yarra Valley in Victoria, Blue Lotus Water Garden stretches over five hectares and boasts thousands of beautiful waterlilies and exotic lotus flowers. The Cochrane family has owned the property for more than 40 years; after moving to the farm, Geoff and Yvonne Cochrane began growing vegetables, including Chinese cabbage, as a market garden. Down the track they decided to create an amazing water garden, which opened in 2006. More than a decade later, the site features ornamental lakes, ponds, bridges, fountains, sculpture and walking trails.
