The Wangi Workers Camera Club visited the Hunter Region Botanic Gardens recently.

The Gardens are a great place to visit between late August and Mid October to take advantage of the many photo opportunities that go with Spring flowering although there is always something in flower throughout the year

Most of the Theme Gardens held flowering plants on the day and lucky explorers found some of the many Terrestrial Orchids that occur at the Garden. Approx. 30 species have been found to date with new ones being added to the list periodically.

As good as the general garden areas were there was great interest shown in the Tropical Orchid House where there was a host of blooms to capture. The two Orchid Houses are a colourful delight in Spring with a number of Orchids flowering at other times of the year.

The Gardens are open from 9 till 4 most days and photographers are most welcome.
