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

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.

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
