Orchid Walks at Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens

For the last couple of years, NOSSA has been conducting spring tours at the Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens, South Australia, showcasing our beautiful native orchids to visitors far and wide.  They have come from not only Adelaide but from interstate as well as overseas from such countries as America, Germany, England and many others.  If you are planning to be in Adelaide during spring, then consider joining one of our walks, but for those who cannot attend here is a video for you.  So watch and enjoy …….
