Picnic area at Leven Canyon Reserve.
Daffodils at Kaydale Lodge.
From Ulverstone, we headed towards
and Leven Canyon Reserve. Although it was still overcast with a
light rain, we took the 20 minute walk to the lookout platform that is
about 250 m above the Leven River. It was cold, but worth the spectacular
Even the picnic area at the car park looked inviting, with the
tree ferns and the towering gums.
By this time we were peckish, so we decided to head back to
Nietta and have
morning tea at Kaydale Lodge.
Mmmmhhh the best caramel tarts I have ever had.
The garden also looked inviting, especially with the daffodils, that
they had been hybridising over a30 year period. Ive never realised that
there were so many varieties of daffodils.
Lodge also has quite extensive gardens including some areas still being
developed. The rockery section was great, with so many different
flowers and plants to enjoy. After our stroll around, we ended up
ordering a selection of daffodil bulbs.
The family are very friendly, and we highly recommend this place.
They even offer accommodation, if you need a place to stay, you
could make this your base to visit the surrounding region.
