Garden Route Botanical Garden

One of our favourite places to visit in George is the garden Route Botanical Garden.  Both my husband and I love taking photos.  This garden is a great place for photography.

The Garden was officially opened in 1998.  The garden is laid out with paths, benches and lots of picnic places.  There is also a tea garden but we have not yet visited it.

The paths go around the dam. The dam was established in 1811 when George was founded and was the town’s first water supply.  Some of the original furrows can still be found in the garden.


We love to just stroll around the garden with our cameras.  There is a wide variety to photograph… flower, plants, insects and birds to name only a few.  Here are a few of my favourite photos from the garden.
