Such beautiful gardens with old heritage-listed trees, everything beautifully manicured, flat walking paths, nice views over the Colac Lake and friendly people.

“Walk or Drive, you choose”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Have visited the gardens on may occasions. Its usually very peaceful with lovely views of the Lake . I would often drive my mother through the gardens , when she was no longer able to walk.
We love to visit the little cafe at the western end of the gardens , on a nice day you can sit out on the deck and enjoy the gardens and the lake with a glass of bubbles or a meal

“Drive Through Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Being disabled, it was great to be able to drive through the gardens and see most of it. Although there were not many flowers out, it was a pleasant drive and the lake is adjacent.

“the best berry-picking in Australia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

If you visit Australia, you have to visit Victoria..a lot of things there to see. Beside the famous Melbourne , there are many nice spots that you can explore, for example Colac. This blueberry pickings area is just 2 hour-driving from Melbourne. When visiting Colac in 2009, we used car..and along the way to go there you would see some nice views. For the entrance fee u only need to pay $AUD10. Afterwards, you can do self pick blueberry as much as you want. As long as you eat in the farm you can eat berries for free. But if u want to take them home, you have to pay . It is around $ 10-20 per kilograms , You also can buy frozen berry if you don't want to get tan or sweaty:). For the self-pick, the owner of the farm will give us the bucket. The best time to come is during summer (January -Maret) . Australian summer is not in June-August :) Don't forget to bring hat, sunnies and sunblock. the address of one of the farm we visited is 2460 Colac Lavers Hill Road Gellibrand 3239
