Punting on the Lake

new birdbath
Botanical Gardens, Melbourne

In a recent excursion, members were treated to a morning of punting on the lake in the Botanical Gardens, Melbourne.

The guided punting tour has only recently been established and we were quick to take advantage of the service which allowed the participants to experience the gardens from a different and gentle vantage point whilst enjoying the touch of autumn colours.
