  • Beautifully designed gardens with a majestic view of the town below. The place is well maintained and even has a tower from where you can get great views of the town including ranges nearby.
  • Provides a lovely vista, particularly in the autumn. It's a breath of fresh air.
  • Well worth visiting at anytime of the year. Lovely walking paths and a great cafe for coffee.
  • Nice small area with an option for a scenic drive, tower to see around, toilets, cafeteria and a picnic table. Heaps of different huge sizes of trees where you can put your blanket under and have a nap. Be aware of mosquitos!
  • Authentic antidote to the unjustified high prices for the weekenders and old town/new town dynamics of Daylesford. Sublime and cool breezy spot on a hot Summer's day.
