Enjoy a beautiful walk through bush tracks in Roleystone, stopping at historic Buckingham Cottage for morning tea (BYO) before heading on to Araluen Botanic Park for lunch and tulip festivalling. You may wear your lederhosen if you like and yodel as we go. 

All up, it's about a 10km loop. You will need a reasonable level of fitness and a spring in your step (because it will be spring).


We will enjoy a walk along the Canning River, stopping at Buckingham Cottage to have morning tea (byo) at about 10am. 


Once we arrive at Araluen Botanical Park, your time is your own, picnicking and viewing the spectacular gardens and of course the tulips. BYO food and drinks, or enjoy the many food stalls at the festival. 


See website: Araluen Botanical Park for more details.

Entry fees to park – about $10. Correct change please

Getting there:
