The gardens are very small, but there are some nice spots to have a picnic. There is a cafe there but we didn't go. You can walk up a tour for some nice views, but other than that is isn't particularly special.

Pretty small site. There's a look out tower with panoramic views, but otherwise there's not much here to get excited about.

The lookout tower gave a beautiful view over picturesque Daylesford. The Autumn leaves were brilliant.

A friend recommended meeting at the cafe run by The Lakehouse owners and I am so glad that she did. The food displayed looked delicious, along with various condiments for sale, and when our chosen dishes arrived we devoured them happily. The hot chocolate was delicious. It was raining and the cafe provided umbrellas in order to reach the outdoor... More

A must walk around through this beautiful treed garden. The elm trees, the colour and peaceful setting is just gorgeous. The lookout has a great view. There is a café but I didn't check it out.

The Botanical Gardens are a few minutes drive from the Main Street ( or a pleasant stroll uphill), on the top of Wombat Hill. On entering it is delightful to drive through huge trees giving an indication of the age of these gardens. There is a circular drive around the gardens but the right hand turn after the entrance leads... More
