About
Alfred Nicholas Memorial Garden is the original garden of the historic Burnham Beeches estate, renowned for its extensive water features. Delightful all year round, choose your own adventure along the many linking paths beneath the canopy of Mountain Ash trees as you stroll through the garden. Make your way down to the picturesque lake for a picnic by the quaint boathouse, take a seat in the gazebo and admire the intriguing sculpture by Mark Stoner, or simply enjoy walking your dog (on lead) through the changing landscape of blooms and foliage.

My wife and I visited this place during our recent holiday in the Dandenong Ranges, staying for two nights in a holiday cottage in Olinda.

Alfred Nicholas Memorial Gardens is one of the jewels of the Dandenong Ranges. The large garden was part of the historic Burnham Beeches Estate. The gardens cover 13 hectares of plantings including Australian native plants. The many linking paths through this garden take you beneath a canopy of very large Mountain Ash Trees.

We walked through shady trees down to the picturesque lake and the quaint boathouse. We also walked across all areas of the Gardens. There is a part towards the rear, that look like forests and it seemed like we were doing bushwalking. The autumn weather was very pleasant.

Alfred Nicholas (1881-1937) along with his brother George (1884-1960) made the first Australian aspirin and named it Aspro.

In the gardens is Burnham Beeches, a holiday mansion built for Nicholas.

Number of gravel and bitumen paths through a tree-filled park, with a small lake and number of water features. Some areas were inaccessible at the time of our visit, due to storm damage. Some stairs and gills, generally an easy walk

Visited the garden late morning in April (autumn) with wife and kid. Lucky enough to find the parking opposite the entrance. Nice garden for a relaxing walk and enjoy the fresh air although the path down to the lake (pond) can be challenging for the elderly. The smell from the portable toilet near the entrance is unbearable. Really amazed to see those who visited the toilet and yet managed to survive the toxic gas.

Beautiful gardens with easily navigable paths and plenty of places to sit and relax. The gardens are on the side of a hill so, while it's a nice meander down from the road the lake, it's a bit of a cardio slog to come back up. It's worth the effort though - the lake with it's little boat house is a great place to spend some time and the arboretum is definitely worth a look.

A great spot in the dandenong ranges for a hike and beautiful walk.
The first thing to note is there’s not much parking available so arrive early for a spot. Also it has become very commercial for the “Instagram” photos so can get over populated in the main walking paths which takes away from the charm however if you go off some of the major trails you’ll find some peaceful spots for waking and relaxing.

Visited here sept 29th after having afternoon tea at the beautiful piggery cafe. Later in the day is great as it’s not as busy, you can even hear the birds singing in the beautiful trees, walking around the grounds is so relaxing, the pond is peaceful& even a few ducks paddling around. Have been here previously for a picnic & also a wedding. I leave here feeling very relaxed & love going here when lm in The Dandenong Ranges.

Found this place by accident! Lovely place to wander around- however limited if in wheelchair or have pram as many parts have steps. Fairly small gardens. Can take dog on lead which was a bonus
