A lovely place to spend a few quiet hours. Walking to the top of the observation tower is a treat. Peaceful, quiet and tranquil.

We have visited the Botanical gardens many times during summer and winter and it is equally as beautiful... I would highly recommend a visit

nice peaceful walk around the gardens, in bad weather you can also do the scenic drive in your car. Worth a look.

It's a really good walk. Beautiful trees. Took some really good photos. I like the cafe inside. Not much, but special. Will go again.

It really is worth a drive and a walk through the Botanical Gardens. The historic trees and the cool atmosphere make it worth the visit. There are nice views too and the cafe is good for a cuppa.

There is a scenic drive through the gardens which was a treat with the beautiful autumn foliage. Definitely worth a look if in the area as it will not take a lot of time, but certainly offers a lovely view. A great place to enjoy a picnic lunch or to stretch your legs

We discovered the gardens quite my accident, but what a delight. They are magnificent and you can see why people visited from Melbourne in the early 1900's. It is just a wonderful place to visit and enjoy the peaceful surronds.

Loved the choice of menu - something for everyone. Excellent wine and warm but lots of natural light. Great place for coffee or fine dining or just to enjoy the views.

These gardens are pleasant but not enough flat walking places and hardly any flowers. The begonias looked so wilted and sad. But ok for a drive around the track.
