Things to See and Do

         ...gardens
          offer us something 
               beyond the
                  material  world.
      They provide a
  spiritual component
            allowing us
     to participate
              in the wonder and
       mystery of creation.

Upland Track Falls

Do you know where this waterfall is in the gardens?

 

It's just below the middle creek crossing on the Upland Bush Walk. Unfortunately, it only looks like this for a day or so after heavy rain. ​Perhaps the question should have been "when?" not "where?"!
