Botanical Bliss – Temora’s Hidden Gem
Whilst it’s not quite a secret garden, beautiful Hillview Park is a little-known gem tucked away on a quiet residential street with views stretching across the entire township. Bursting with native and Mediterranean-style plantings, the park is a showpiece for sustainable, waterwise gardening.
We recommend packing a picnic and timing your garden stroll to watch the sunset from the gazebo.
Open 24 hours. Accessible toilet facilities on site.
Location: Deutcher Street, Temora
