Nice quiet garden area with views over the town & surrounds. More a treed park rather than botanic gardens, would be nice in autumn

Loved the novelty of the viewing tower but the trees obscured the view. Gorgeous old trees to enjoy... an old fashioned park.

Another must see near Daylesford, with a cracking cafe in it too which is run by a 2 hat restaurant in town. The gardens are well worth a stroll, the air is clean and has amazing views too

One of the only gardens I've seen that features the lazy option of driving thru. great way too save time if in a hurry. the tall trees are stunning. stop at the tower and have a walk around if you feel active.
