Begonia Festival -at Ballarat Botanical Gardens

The Begonia Festival is an annual event held at the Ballarat Botanical Gardens, 143 kms northwest of Melbourne...the festival highlights the beauty of the begonias among other activities.
I was so amazed at the beauty of the flowers, and never realized that there could be thousands of varieties of Begonias. Some of them looked like roses as huge as my face! The begonia display/exhibition was held inside the Robert Clarke Conservatory at the botanical gardens which is just across the famous Wendouree Lake.
This post is composed of two albums, one features the beautiful gardens and the other is the begonia display. Hope you'll like this post.
