Only 10 minutes drive from Mildura centre across the Murray, has walks suited to all including wheelchairs. We wandered around the fragrant and very pretty rose garden, then stepped out for a longer tour. Interesting groves of plants to see from many countries, beautifully naturally displayed. Wow indeed to gaze at the thriving ancient 2500 year old mallee gum WOW tree, and enjoy the artistic imagination invested in the gazebo seed pod ceiling, the birdsong and vistas. The information centre/cafe is cool and welcoming, 200m from the Rose Garden, with parking for those with mobility problems. We had a nice coffee, resisted the tempting cookies and cakes. The history of the gardens with its strong community and volunteer support, how people worked together to realise the vision is fascinating to read in the $3-00 information brochure, more than worth the money. A small group was meeting there to plan for an upcoming festival, and the continuing vision and community support is evident throughout the gardens. There's no entry fee, and we happily made a donation.
