Australian native flowers are my specialty. And, while I love gum blossoms for their variety of colours, Banksias are my favourite of all. They come in so many different shapes, sizes and colours. When I zoom in with my lens their intricacy is amazing.
There are wonderful banksias in the Australian Botanical Gardens at Mount Annan, about a 45-minute drive from Sydney. There is a dedicated Banksia Garden there and it’s one of the places I can spend a lot of time with my camera photographing the different types of banksia.
It’s a great place to take a picnic and enjoy our beautiful Australian native flowers.
