SYDNEY’S CHERRY BLOSSOMS IN BLOOM @ AUBURN BOTANICAL GARDENS

Photography by Ben Apfelbaum.

The Cherry Blossoms were out in full bloom at the Auburn Botanical Gardens and  surrounding streets. As they were designed to simulate a Japanese garden, the Japanese community came out in force, mingling with other people of ethnic origin.

As a result there were kimonos aplenty, manga and cos players, sumo wrestlers and even a geisha  girl.

Sydney’s Cherry Blossom Festival was on display at the Auburn Botanical  Gardens between the 18th and the 27th August 2017.
