Members and friends of the Garden Club enjoyed their Christmas Lunch together with a trip to Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens. Whilst we expected the gardens to be dry we were pleasantly surprised by their condition. We enjoyed tours in the Gardens\’ bus and then met together with a grand lunch at the Lookout (or Mountain Hut) within the Gardens. Thank you to all who formed the working party to provide the goodies and to transport the necessaries to the Gardens. We intend returning when the weather is cooler; we now we have an idea of the width and breadth of the Gardens and their various styles and we will be able to focus on our particular or individual interests.
