Botanic Gardens - last call




Upper levels, back view, of Conservatorium of Music.  Website: Australian Castles/Gothic architecture offers the full frontal here

a welcoming respite from the sun, under the fig-tree canopy





Read of the incredible fate in 1882, of  The Garden Palace  to which this beautiful sandstone and wrought-iron gateway belonged .

I'll be sure to return to the gardens again before too long; there is so much to explore still.

I was there in January, after visiting the Mawson Exhibition at the State Library.
Great photos of a lovely place to wander through.
