An old growth magestic garden. A most enjoyable and soothing place to visit. A well maintained garden with amazing views of the surrounding area. A must visit.

Beautifull old established gardens with gobsmackingly huge trees all well labelled, a nice conservatory flower display, sweeping views as you walk around and a cafe for refreshment. Parking is somewhat limited, go up to the tower to the main carpark. Good place to bring visitors.

I have been to the gardens a few times and have enjoyed my visit. Lots of interesting looking trees and flowers. Sometimes it's difficult to get a car park on a very busy day.

After lunch at one of the fab cafes in Daylesford, sneak up to the gardens for a relaxing afternoon and beat the Summer heat under the large established trees. Mabe a nap before your drive home

If you go left on entry, you go on the loop road. If you go right, this takes you directly to the top where the tower is. Climb up the tower. Nice small garden at the top of Daylesford. There's a cafe here.

Lovely spot for a walk on a hot summer day. Lots of interesting plants. Parking can be an issue. Cafe on the grounds.

It is a small botanical garden and you could ride around it but the area is a hilly place.
