A hidden garden in the Dandenong Ranges, the Alfred Nicholas Gardens are the original gardens of the ‘historic Burnham Beeches’ estate. The Gardens are renowned for their extensive water features including a quaint boathouse, the unusual Blackfish Pond and a picturesque lake which is fed by two striking waterfalls.
The structure of the garden is emphasized by the many rock walls, waterfalls, upper pools and the magnificent lakes. The many linking paths through this garden take you beneath a canopy of awesome Mountain Ash Trees.
Admire the natural beauty of the surroundings all year round. Walk through shady trees down to the picturesque lake, and picnic with the family by the boathouse. In spring, view the flowering azaleas, cherry trees and viburnum. Stroll through the magnificent gardens, take your dog for a walk or photograph the blooming flowers.
The garden is located on Sherbrooke Road, Sherbrooke. The visitor car park is opposite the main entrance.
