So many lovely paths and features to the Rose Gardens. I enjoyed an early morning walk around the lake and past the Art Gallery. The paths and gardens are all well cared for and a pleasure to walk through. There are lots of hidden little nooks and seats to sit and rest on and enjoy looking at the surrounding gardens.... More

The gardens where here well before the lake arrived. But there are many wonderful old trees and a great collection of roses to one side. If you visit Benalla, visit these gardens.

The gardens are beautiful at the moment with Summer flowers out and the value of shade in the Summer is obvious here. The statue honouring "Weary" Dunlop was moving, too.

The rose gardens are beautiful. A new play ground for the kids is being built and when finished will be very busy with a lot of happy... More

The initial instigators of these pleasant gardens certainly did have a commendable foresight locating the gardens close to the town, next to the ricer for watering and planting trees that these days are on the historical register. These include Bunya Pines, Elms, Plane trees, many Magnolias, Morteton Bay Figs, Lillypillys etc. Two of the attractions on the periphery are the... More

I have loved the Benalla gardens since I was very young. It is a lovely place to wander around and get lost in thought. The lake and the gardens complement each other.
