About
The George Tindale Memorial Garden garden contains a number of plants rarely found in cultivation, which are thriving in the acidic soils, cool temperate climate and shaded conditions found in the Dandenong Ranges. Extensive collections of magnolias, rhododendrons, camellias, azaleas, fuchsias and hydrangeas will delight garden enthusiasts. The garden is a reflection of George and Ruth Tindale’s vision of having a garden displaying something of interest all year round – offering something new with each season – a myriad of flowers in spring; hydrangeas, lilliums and fuchsias in summer; a canopy of gold, red, orange and burgundy in Autumn and the flowers of the Lenten Rose or Hellebore beneath flowering shrubs in winter. There are many areas that may be of interest to you; the nationally registered hydrangea collection, the sculptures on permanent display and the mature canopy of trees.

My wife and I visited this place during our recent holiday in Dandenong Ranges where we stayed for two nights in a holiday cottage in Olinda.

Set under the canopies of large Mountain Ash Trees, this cool climate garden has magnolias, rhododendrons, camellias, azaleas, fuchsias and hydrangeas.

The grounds are around 2.4 hectares (much smaller than some of the other gardens that we have visited), so we walked across all the walking tracks to explore the entire place. The lovely autumn weather and the colours of autumn leaves enhanced our enjoyment of our visit.

Wonderful history of this place with outstanding efforts of volunteers to keep it going. Some spectacular examples of hydrangea's and a bonus to see some lyre birds wandering around. The kids loved the maze of paths to explore

This garden is badly in need of some maintenance. We didn't bother seeing the whole garden because the paths were quite slippery with moss. We visited in early November and we had missed the best of the rhododendron colours and weren't keen to brave the slippery paths all the ay down. A shame.

My girlfriend and I took a stroll around a few local gardens, and really enjoyed this one because it was so quiet and uncrowded.
It's small, but with a nice outlook and it feels very private.

This is a beautiful garden but NOT suitable for older people or people with walking difficulties. Whilst we managed to walk around the old home, it would have been reckless to do any other walks. The gardens were really lovely, what we did see

Nice little gardens, not as grand or as big as Alfred Nicholas Gardens, but just up the road and worth a visit if you have time. Very pretty rotunda. Apparently loads of rare and exotic plants. Quite small and the moss covered paths could potentially be slippery in the wet.

This garden, some 2.4 HA at 440 Metres high was first purchased by a Captain Pallant in 1893 and had various owners until purchased by George Tindale,a Research Scientist and his wife Ruth in 1958 and expanded to what it is today, a beautiful mix of European amid Australian Mountain Ash.

This was a really nice quiet garden. Beautiful to walk around. An amzing selction of trees including a Monkey puzzle tree. However it need some maintenance and upkeep. Looks like a lot of funding has been removed which is a shame! l really hope something can be done but it is still worth visiting!
