Summer Outings – Cloude Hill

I recently hosted a Photographic Excursion with my group at Cloude Hill Gardens in Olinda. The weather dawned perfect, mid 20c and light winds, perfect for a day in the hills.

Made on an easterly slope at the top of the Dandenongs, Cloudehill is at an altitude of 580 metres. The garden has deep volcanic loam soil and 1.25 metres of rainfall. This falls most of the year, through February, March and April are drier. There is little frost, more snow than frost in fact. These factors go to explain why the Dandenongs is one of the outstanding places to garden worldwide.

There were about 20 of us in the group, and we wandered around the expansive gardens, taking lots of shots. There were exquisite gardens, with bushland and statues, artwork.

Til next time, happy snapping……..
