  • Stunning gardens and great paths to walk around, with a lovely lake and scenic areas. Perfect in Spring and Autumn but also worth a visit any time of the year. Its now free entry which is nice and parking is usually pretty easy. They have a little cafe and gift shop that you walk through to enter the gardens
  • Beautiful! Staff lovely and helpful, and there's so much to explore - greenhouses, ponds and expansive gardens. Entrance gate is via the South end of the gardens. There are gates along the side but they appear to be locked most of the time.
  • Beautiful gardens set in the Dandenongs, with couple of lakes around. Great to see during Spring and Autumn. Worth a visit
  • Beautiful gardens and donation entry. The water pins are a sight to be seen on a sunny autumn day. The reflections are incredible.
