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

A garden which is small but very well maintained. Beautiful view from the tower top. The space is limited on the top so wait if there is more than 3 people. Scenic drive is surrounded by beautiful trees.

Well kept gardens on the top of the hill. Lots of space for playing, with a café for when the energy wears off. The café has lovely cakes!

Springtime meant we were guaranteed lots of blooms and we weren't disappointed. Lots of magnificent trees and stunning rhododendrons. And beautiful place to sit and relax, read a book, soak up the sun.

Followed the signs from Daylesford main road and found this nice escape, easy drive with nice 360 views. Worth a pit stop for photos.

A beautiful meander to the cafe in a wonderful garden setting. We sat in the armchairs in front of the fireplace to have coffee and to share a piece of orange and almond cake. Wow so delicious. Staff were very friendly and the coffee was excellent. Would most certainly recommend

Not the biggest or best gardens but interesting with some very old trees. There is a cafe and a water tower to climb for the views. Worth a short visit.

It was okay, pretty flowers, you'd spend like 15 minutes there. There's a "scenic" track to drive round. It's not that great and the road surface was awful to get round and there was no warning initially about it. I would just head over to Ballarat, their botanical garden is so much nicer. I did however take a few nice... More
