If you go left on entry, you go on the loop road. If you go right, this takes you directly to the top where the tower is. Climb up the tower. Nice small garden at the top of Daylesford. There's a cafe here.

Lovely spot for a walk on a hot summer day. Lots of interesting plants. Parking can be an issue. Cafe on the grounds.

Avenues of beautiful trees, scenic views from the tower. Cool on a hot summers day to sit and read a book. Didn't visit the cafe or hothouse. Maybe next time.

Driving around the gardens on their scenic route allows you to experience the majestic treed garden situated on a former volcano overlooking Daylesford. In summer the trees provide plenty of shade for those interesting in a picnic either on the ground or in one of...More

It is a beautiful botanical garden with lots of trees, shrubs and fernery. This is normally on our to-do list when we visit Daylesford. There is an historic lookout tower approximately 25m high with a tight internal staircase that is worth climbing for the spectacular...More

We like to walk so use Wombat Hills as one of our walking spots - nice and shady with a couple of good views across Daylesford. Its height puts it pretty close to Mt Franklin, but obviously differing views. A walk round the Scenic Drive...More

We were in Daylesford on the hottest day for two years and the gardens offer a lovely shady retreat from the heat. The smell of lavender was apparent and the gardens are very well maintained. Definitely worth a visit.

Take a stroll, go up the observation tower and maybe go to the cafe. Great big trees. You can walk up a big hill from the main street of Daylesford for a more strenuous walk

Very pretty gardens and lovely and cool to visit on a hot Summer day. I expected the tower to have a view from the top but it was largely obscured by trees which was disappointing. The gardens have a large variety of trees and flowers...More

It is a small botanical garden and you could ride around it but the area is a hilly place.
