The Gardens

Photo a day for autism acceptance in April

Today we discovered a really wonderful playground. The botanic gardens are home to most of Darwin’s oldest trees. Darwin was all but leveled on Christmas Day 1974 when cyclone Tracy hit the town dead on.

Almost 40 years later and the gardens are quite beautiful. They are tucked in between the beach and the city, green, quiet, lush and cool in the overbearing humidity of the tropics. The playground they have created in these gardens are wonderful for kids who love to roam and climb. It’s semi-fenced and rambles through a few different garden style rooms.

The boys really enjoyed climbing up to the top of this three level structure. Getting down was not quite so much fun! There was also a great area where there were lots of rocks and stones strewn around various paths and enormous stands of bamboo. We went hunting for Macca Pacca.
