Lisgar Gardens

After having lunch in Dural, we decided to google search a nearby location that was worth visiting and that could hopefully offer a beautiful scenery for us to capture through our lens.

Lisgar Gardens was one of the first locations which came up on our search. It was located in Hornsby, approximately 15 minutes away from Dural, so we decided to take up the opportunity and explore.

It’s hard to figure out whether or not you’ve arrived from what you can see. Hornsby is full of shrubs and bushes, so it was all looking the same. We had to walk down this pathway which we stumbled across few people who were pretty nicely dress- as if for a wedding. We immediately thought, we must be heading in the right direction !

Along the walk, we couldn’t help but stop by and admire the beautiful flowers.

We then arrived at the Lisgar Gardens gate.

Pass the gates, down the steep walkway with a few diverted pathways to smaller areas like the small waterfall, a little park, a small greenhouse lookalike and other park facilities.

The main pathway, led us to the prettiest garden I’ve ever seen. It’s been awhile since I’ve had the opportunity to visit a nice garden like this – filled with beautiful, colourful flowers in a large open space.

At the end of the garden space, there is a little pavilion which is used for functions such as a wedding, just like the one we just stumbled across upon arriving there at Lisgar!

There is indeed another pathway which goes even further down those stairs. It leads to a small greenhouse lookalike – The Glades. Ever watch the Maze Runner? Or even read the books? Well the first book is set in the Glades! Indeed, it did remind me of this, but the Glades in the book wasn’t the place you’d want to visit ! Here at Lisgar, you wouldn’t have a problem!

Down in that small water pond under the mini bridge, there is apparently a very long snake, but I couldn’t spot it. Maybe that was a good thing! Inside the Glades, there is that bridge, and heaps and heaps of plants. It’s a very calm and peaceful place to be in.

We stayed till about 5pm when the gates shut. I would definitely recommend visiting, especially on a nice sunny day. The garden is spectacular, and if you’re after a photo spot, this place serves it’s purpose.

Make a visit and appreciate the beauty of these gardens. It’s simply, beautiful.
