Tour Overview

Araluen Botanic Park is an extraordinary garden in a breathtakingly beautiful bushland setting. Enjoy this exclusive opportunity to discover the hidden secrets behind the locked gates of Araluen. A 4.5km hike through stoned pathways across the terraces that are lined by enormous stone pillars and shaded jarrah pergolas. View the circa 1930’s log cabins located in each garden precinct and learn about Araluen’s heritage and history.

Located within 59 hectares of native Australian bushland, the developed gardens cover 14 hectares. Each precinct features various exotic plant species that flourish in the cool micro climate of the Roleystone Perth Hills.  Stinton Creek flows within the Park all year, flowing into the Canning Dam. Araluen flourishes amongst an undulating native backdrop of Eucalyptus, Marri and Blackbutt Trees, with collections of banksia, grass trees and man ferns amongst flowering blooms, it is an experience for the senses.
