Visited in mid Nov. Nice garden with plenty of flowers. Great views at the top of the tower. Could have spent more time to walk around!

A nice place to spend an hour strolling around, or having a picnic. Free parking and a little local cafe (didn't try this though).

Well worth a visit and the cafe is lovely too. Although a little off the main st it is well worth venturing up to the gardens and walking around them.

Can circumnavigate by car and foot marvelling at the birds eye views. We took a picnic basket and rug last time, feasted and wandered around. It was lush and leafy and very peaceful mid week. The toilets were very clean.

This is a nice place for a stroll or a picnic under a beautiful tree, and there are lots of beautiful old trees to choose from. The climb to the top of the tower is well worth it for the views, although if you can't manage a lot of narrow stairs or are claustrophobic, you will struggle.

Conifers collected from all over the world and very very old with enormous size to match. The gardens were established in the 1870's.

Brilliant blue skies, sunny winters day, easy weather for walking. Take a walk from whatever point you are at in Daylesford up to the gardens and up to the top of the tower.
