Botanic Gardens on Norfolk Island, June 27th, 2018

Posted by Lisa Hill on June 28, 2018

On Wednesday we visited the Botanic Gardens on Norfolk Island.  Entry is free, and you can buy inexpensive brochures that give you more information about the flora and fauna from the Park Ranger’s Office.

The slideshow speaks for the beauty of these magnificent gardens, the gift of Mrs Annie Eliza Moore.

  1. I love the name Devil’s guts. That native lemon. Is it edible? If so how different is it to the lemons we know? And oleander vulnerable? Tell them to come to Canberra and they can take as many as they like!

    I love visiting gardens.

      I think that we’ve eaten that lemon, it looks just the same as what we’ve bought in the shops… it tastes just like a normal lemon except it’s rounder in shape.
      Yeah, I know about oleanders! We have two beautiful ones in our garden, a gorgeous splash of colour, but this Norfolk one is a different colour and (according to the brochure which is where I got all my info) vulnerable!
