We just stopped in for a juice and a fruit salad. The cafe was very busy ... but staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. I noticed the owner was particularly engaging with kids and pets. It was a nice experience.

A wonderful place to visit, allow the day and when hot take lots of Water! You must take good Walking Shoes as it's fairly rocky terrain. Take a camera for some great shots through the Woods, I didn't manage to spot a Wombat but did manage to see a Kangaroo and a Fox!

Perfect place for a stroll whilst visiting Daylesford, well maintained as well as wilder rambling charm and vistas in all directions.

Visited with my wife and 14 month old. Was a lovely quiet garden with great views. The tower offered great views of the surrounding area. Relaxing and enjoyable!

Quite a pleasant walk round the gardens after mastering the Tower. Came to the Cafe for a quick refreshment, had to wait a bit so took some of the water which was warm and needed ice. Dogs are welcome which is great to see on a hot sunny day. Plenty of spots to sit and relax or have Picnics.

These gardens and grounds are surprisingly expansive for a small country town. The cafe wasn't open on Wednesdays - the day of my visit - which was a huge disappointment as I heard their devonshire teas were worth the walk from the main street.

It is a good place to wander among trees. A pleasant walk in peace !!! You would see lot of elderly couples in the park. A "scenic drive" to begin with but I didn't feel it was not its name. I wouldn't rate this place more than 3 stars. But given that Daylesford hasn't got much places this is one... More

A one way scenic drive is a pleasant if a little bumpy drive around the gardens dotted with sculptures. Shady avenues of trees with some amazing specimens from all over the world that seem to flourish in this part of Victoria. Views of the surrounding extinct volcanic can be glimpsed through the trees as you drive around. We climbed the... More

Gardens are a great opportunity for a little stroll through some pretty gardens and nice views of Daylesford. Not very large but prefect for a easy walk
