Lovely stroll around the gardens! Definitely worth visiting taking the scenic drive along with exploring the gardens on foot. A very fun place, suitable for children too.

We visited in mid spring so many trees, shrubs and flowers were in full bloom. Great views from several lookouts. Climb the tower for an overview of the surrounding countryside and town of Daylesford. Worth a short visit.

Just a really well maintained small garden with some great specimen trees and fernery perched on top of a hill in Daylesford. Can get windy so keep a jacket handy.

Well worth the trip to the top of Wombat Hill, to admire the various plant varieties and take in the view. There are several walks of various standards through the gardens.

Ate here today, had a Ruben and was a little disappointed that it came out in a roll smaller than my fist as the taste was excellent. Wife had a pizza which was perfectly sized for one. Nice atmosphere.

It is a small botanical garden and you could ride around it but the area is a hilly place.
