“A Must-See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The extensive gardens are a burst of colour, beautifully maintained. The gardens give striking views over the Dandfenong Ranges. Aim to spend a good 4-5 hours walking the easy pathways.

Visit in Spring and enjoy magnificent Rhododendrons and Azaleas. You can be driven around the gardens and the commentary is very informative. Enjoy a culpa Great day out.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

I bring my mum up here every time she visits. I am very thankful for the bus they run in rhodo season as she has trouble walking and the gardens are very steep and very extensive. I like that entry is free.

“Simply Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

This is where I will get married this year, in November. How to decide which part of the gardens to get married in!!! The lake, the pond, the green - it's lush.
