There is a tower to climb, however the view long ago obscured by the wonderful trees in the park. We wandered a while then laid down on the soft grass and watched the birds fly limb to limb and enjoyed the peace and ambiance of this lovely park

It was nice there but there is limited table and chairs. They are not positioned well, one was near the toilets with no views. The view is lovely overlooking the countryside, seats would be nice scattered around so you could sit and have a picnic.

A lovely area to walk or drive around on a sealed road. Good views of the surrounding areas with many large trees and grassy areas. A great picnic place and some historical attractions on the summit. A very peaceful place.

There is no view from this cafe which really is amazing since the gardens are so lovely and the views outstanding. Therefore you could be anywhere in Victoria, which we found very disappointing. But even more so were the high prices. They are about 30% more than most solid cafes in the area, and while the food is very pleasant,... More

These gardens are well worth a visit on a scorching hot day or in the middle of winter, we have done both. There are glimpses of magnificent vues, then a surprise of a vista that makes you stand still and just look. As you walk amongst the variant of foliage you are surprised at every turn with birds and wildlife... More

The cafe here has a good variety of food and drinks. We loved the location and sat outside which was very pleasant. The staff were pleasant and the service was prompt. We then had a stroll around the gardens. We would come back and again and bring out of state visitors with us as we loved the location.

We drove through the garden and realised that it is a nice place for a picnic. It is small garden and has couple of look outs with a good view of the surroundings

Nice park, nice trees. The tower is worth a trip up a few stairs. Food was ok, but not fantastic, but $13 for a pre-made baguette is a bit rich for mine.

The botanical gardens sit high on a hill overlooking the Daylesford landscape. The gardens themselves are filled with an array of flora and fauna, some trees were planted over 100 years ago. There is even one tree planted by Prince Charles. There's a green house to wander around, rotunda to relax in and a cafe to rest those weary legs... More

Located in the middle of the botanical gardens, this little gem is well worth visiting - some lovely food to be had amongst the delightful gardens.
