Seawinds is a 34 hectare property located along Purves Road at Arthurs Seat.  Seawinds has magnificent views of Port Philip Bay, the Mornington and Bellarine Peninsulas.

George Chapmanwas the first owner (1896).  Chapman used to be a timber merchant and a gardener at Heronswood, Dromana. 

He built a homestead on the property near the northern lookout and his children used a horse and dray to get to school each day in Dromana at the bottom of Arthurs Seat.Some of the older trees that dominate the garden were planted by him over 100 years ago.

In 1960 Sir Thomas Travers (subsequent owner of Seawinds) acquired five William Ricketts ceramic works of art that  are now featured in a rock wall in the garden. In 1975 the Victorian State Government purchased Seawinds" from the Travers estate and included it in Arthurs Seat National Park .

An 800 metre walk around the gardens takes in most of the main features. although there are many other short walks. See Photos
