Michelle from Homeschooling Down Under and Belinda from Live Life with Your Kids have invited us to show you our little piece of Australia. In our 'back yard' we have a number of gorgeous places to visit and today I would like to introduce four of them to you.
1. Victorian State Rose Garden
Rose Garden justice. The Rose Garden is open every day of the year to the public and entrance is free.
2. The MansionThe Mansion property is FREE but if you would like to look inside the historical home there is a small fee. Walking through these gardens is magnificent. The trees are enormous and the grounds are beautifully kept. Continue round the back and you will walk into history. The farming part of the mansion is still there to take a look at. If you like art there is also a sculpture walk to enjoy.
Werribee Open Range Zoo. Paul works here and if you'd like to meet his serval be sure to attend a presentation (You can watch Paul introduce serval at a night zoo presentation on YouTube). Depending on the time of year the zoo is open after dark (Night Zoo) and during summer for Rhythm of Africa.
