This large area of parkland is in the heart of Benalla. While we found it pleasant enough for a short stroll, it is in no way a botanical garden. It's mearly a large park.

Another awesome afternoon in Benalla. These gardens are absolutely terrific and so well maintained. Plenty of roses, other native plants and permanent armed forces memorabilia for visitors to enjoy. Lots of architectural respect and commemorative photo opportunities for me to keep in my albums as...More

The botanic gardens are lush and beautiful; they are adjacent to the Benalla Art Gallery. There is a poignant Weary Dunlop memorial and rows of rose bushes.

The Art Gallery is sited on the banks of the Broken River in the Benalla Botanical Gardens. There are also some moving War Memorials and the Bridge built pre World War One by (General Sir) John Monash.

This is pleasant enough but compared to some other efforts around Victoria such as Melbourne's Cranbourne annex, it is uninspiring. My opinion hasn't changed in the decade since I last visited. There are some good photo opportunities for pre-nuptials but that's about it. An easy...More
