Compared to the other Dandenong Ranges gardens, this garden generally has far fewer people, ample parking, and is pretty quiet. It is spectacular in autumn (with some colourful trees not present in the other gardens), has a variety of flowers in late spring, and the...More

I visited on a weekday afternoon in early Autumn on a bright but cool day. I was the only visitor during the hour or so I wandered the pathways. Too many spots along the paths were overgrown and barely passable - foliage or branches had...More

Lovely gardens, very pretty. Lovely place to have a picnic! Was quite hard walking back up the hill in the humidity and heat though.

The thing that makes this stand out from other gardens in area is (during my visit) the lack of crowds compared to the other gardens in area. stunning gardens without crowds

The Canadian maples are beyond amazing here.....it's an absolute jewel box in autumn, with the many tree species throwing up leaves when they turn orange, red, scarlet, purple, yellow and brown. A must for your camera or paint box! You can have a very decent...More

When we visited in early November we had missed the best of the Rhododendron colour but we enjoyed the beautiful trees and tree ferns. it is a very steep garden so you want to be fit to enjoy it!

The garden is spectacular to visit in autumn when leaves change colours to hues of orange, red and yellow. Garden opens from 10am to 5pm. Free entry. While you are in the Dandenong ranges, pay a visit to National Rhododendron gardens nearby.

What a wonderful discovery - it's like walking into a secret garden - quite well maintained but not a soul in sight. The Ansells, the original owners, created an incredible park with a number of gently sloping paths that take you down into a gully,...More

A quiet but pretty steep garden, not as well looked after as most in the Dandenongs. That's not a bad thing though is you like your gardens with a wilder feel. I was the only one there for at least 2 hours. Highly rated.

Rather steep garden with beautiful views. The most interesting part is the lower garden with steps and lots of moss, there are also railings to hold onto. The colours of the moss with the colourful spring flowers provide lovely photo opportunities.
