These botanical gardens are beautiful. Easy access for anyone. Plenty of signs and seats for you to relax and enjoy the views. Right next to Lake Colac so more views to enjoy. Worth the visit

We just wanted to walk off our large breakfast so wondered up to the gardens to have a look around. Very pretty with some lovely views of the lake.

Nice park, well maintained and very quiet. When you have a spare hour you should really visit I this park. They have name shields at the various trees and a possibility to have lunch (bbq)

Small gardens overlooking the lake. Absolutely delightful walk. We had coffee at the cafe then took a walk and several photos. A little treasure to explore.

These gardens provide many area for families to picnic under the trees. It is next to Lake Colac so there are some great views. It is both a pet and people friendly garden with a cafe if you fancy a bite.
