Devonshire tea at the Australian national botanical gardens

A gorgeous day in Canberra for a walk and Devonshire tea

After breakfast (see an image below), Bron and I agreed we’d go out around lunch time for a wander around the botanical gardens and then have a bite to eat.

The botanical gardens reflects parts of Australia’s natural native flora. We walked through the new red centre area as well as the rain forest valley. 

After the walk we went to Floresco for a bite to eat. At first I was thinking a pie floater with mushy peas and mashed potato in a bowl of pea soup. The thing that put me off was it was served with napolitano sauce. Then we spied Devonshire tea and agreed. As we approached the counter Bron noticed a tart with a macaron shell on top. We got one of those too.

The Australian national botanical gardens is a good place for a walk on a nice day. After a nice walk, you can get refreshment from Floresco in the Gardens.

    1. It wasn’t too bad Lorraine. The macaron had okay texture but very little flavour. The chocolate ganache tart was good and only a little too sweet. The pastry was good. Not too thick.
