Did you think that in suburban Blackwood you might fun a gem of an oasis? Welcome to the Wittunga Botanic and Butterfly Garden!
This beautiful collection of flora covers 13 hectares, with an extensive and very family friendly collection of water-wise plants from Australia as well as South Africa.
It is a popular place for family gatherings and lakeside picnics on the shady lawns, so why not join them on your next family day out!
At the Wittunga Botanic and Butterfly Garden there are brilliant displays of ericas and proteas in spring, plants from Kangaroo Island and Fleurieu Peninsula, a new grey box forest and a beautiful butterfly garden for all to enjoy.
During your visit to Wittunga why not get the most out of it for the kids and learn more about how plants get their scientific names? The Wittunga Naming Walk demonstrates how plants are named scientifically and the origins of their names, whether from a person or a characteristic of the plant.
There are twenty four interpretative signs installed throughout the garden, stationed alongside the relevant plant, so kids get the excitement of finding the signs, plus you all learn something, bonus!
