Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Must-see if doing Arthur’s Seat chairlift, and even if you’re not. Serene, stunning leafy vista with tame ducks and their ducklings, cockatoos, and the occasional skink. The view at the end of the avenue of trees is spectacular on a clear day - on a sunny day in October we could see as far as the Otway Ranges on the horizon! Toilets and parking and an updated playground.

Seawinds Gardens is a little known asset at Arthurs Seat and far better than the Seat itself for views, gardens, flora and open space. It is a great spot for a picnic and a walk and for views across Port Phillip Bay.

The Seawinds Gardens encompasses a 34 hectare area at the Arthurs Seat State Park. My wife and I visited this place during our 1.8 km walk along the Arthurs Seat circuit walk.

Once privately owned, the gardens still exhibit many of the original European features. Exotic plants, rock retaining walls, terracing, tree lined avenues and infrastructures set in place by Mr Chapman and Sir Thomas and Lady Travers. Some of the oldest trees in the park were planted by Mr Chapman, over 100 years ago.

There is also a duck pond and a children's playground in these gardens.

We did this as part of the summit walk at Arthurs Seat. It was a nice gentle walk and because no one else was around there we saw a mop of Kangaroos just sunning themselves.

Try the 50 minute circular walk up to Arthurs Seat and back. Easy and wheelchair friendly if you just do the circle within the park. Nice children's playground at the main car park. Trees will be turning colour soon in late Autumn. Great views of the bay and Ocean along the way. Just one place where you have to cross the road.

From the top of Arthur’s Seat, near the Eagle gondola ride, we set set off for a walk around the circuit track. It was signposted as 1hour or 1.8km but we took our time enjoying the views until we came to the gardens. They are beautifully maintained and would be great for a picnic or bbq another time. There was a car park at the gardens if you did not want to do the walk or had mobility issues. Well worth a visit.

18:30 took a drive up to Arthur's Seat - So we could go into Seawinds and walk in the evening. As we were walking along the path there were around 10 Kangaroo's in front of us. They did not move too much as we approached slow, then we carried onto the view point - The weather was a little overcast so the view was not too good - Need to go on a clear "Blue sky" day so you will then have magnificent views over the Port Philip Bay.
We walked around the gardens reading all the information and there are several walks to do too.
