We enjoyed the gardens but thought that some of the gardens run by Parks Victoria were better and were free. Staff in gardens and shop very nice but would not go back to seasons restaurant

Amazing garden set in a traditional English style, the Australian way. Fabulous beech trees, lots of red maples, rhodedendrons and art works. Not suitable for disabled as on gravel and a slope.

Maybe it was the time of year we visited but we weren't impressed with this garden. Being the beginning of spring there were daffodils and grape hyacinths blooming but that was about all apart from some rhododendrons. The rest of the graden lacked vegetation and...More

We went in March, a really busy time, just out of summer, showing wilting from heat and weeds coming through. Too hot to work with so many visitors browsing. Top areas were well maintained and one can get lost with so many paths and levels....More

We visited Cloudehill Gardens in winter and do appreciate that most gardens are not good at this time of the year. It would be lovely in spring and summer. They should waiver charges during the winter or close for gardening maintenance. There is a gift...More

Beautiful gardens with lots of variety from highly manicured to more natural and wild. A good walk too if you want down the steep hillside and back up again. Plus a fair bit of sculptural art in the gardens for the art lover.

I live at the foot of the mountain and cannot think of a caravan park that would suit, although many B&Bs in close proximity at various prices. Mt Dandenong is best suited to day tripping and Cloudehill is great for lunch... More
