17. Garden Birds
The native scrubfowl- bold, loud and apparently indifferent to the urban chooks who invade. They now live side by side- the hen a little fearful, moving aside. There’s often a small drama going on in the yard.
42. Botanic Gardens Lake
This small, dark lake is at the heart of the Botanic Gardens and sometimes has fountains. Magnificent large trees surround the lake and path which leads off into the rest of the Gardens.
41. Darwin Botanical Gardens cafe
The old Wesleyan Methodist Church was built in Adelaide and transported to Darwin in 1897, where it stood for over 100 years in Knuckey Street, surviving several cyclones. In 2000 it was renovated and moved to the Botanic Gardens, where it hosted many public functions; weddings, parties, art exhibitions, until 2014 when it was turned into a café.
