Walked to this place from the caravan park. Peaceful setting with plenty of history and trees to learn about. Fascinated with the old saw mill's story. A lovely morning of exploring.

We found out about the arboretum after visiting the Information centre. We were very impressed with it. A beautiful walk around the lakes and lush planting around. Stunning views towards Mount Abrupt. Lovely place to stretch your legs if you are passing through Dunkeld.

Worth the short walk to this lovely pond and arboretum plus native wildflower meadow. If you enjoy native flora and fauna you will enjoy this. Nice easy walk.

It was very cold for spring! But the 4 ducklings and their protective and proud parents made us feel good! And helped us make room for a cooked breakfast on holidays!!
