Nerima Gardens



One of our favourite places to visit during the school holidays is Queens Park, in particular the Japanese themed Nerima Gardens.






The gardens are a place of peace and tranquility.









My Son brought his camera along too.






There is plenty of wildlife to see.



We found the cutest pair of baby Noisy Miner birds sitting on a branch.   They looked so angelic ..... till their Mum came back with some food.



There are so many different paths to explore.



It's hard to believe that the gardens are only a five minute walk away from the CBD.

    1. Thanks Karen. My son loves photography. I let him use one of my old cameras. Trouble is he wants to use the 7D.
