Beautiful peaceful gardens with some magnificent old trees. Viewing tower at the centre provides a great view of the surrounding countryside.

Had a really nice lunch there on Sunday afternoon March 12th 2017. Quiet, peaceful and good food and service, surrounded by the gardens and listening to the birdsong, not a traffic noise or airplane sound within cooee.

Great spot to drive around and see some huge trees and picnic area. Visit the tower and see the surrounding countryside. Best of all no entrance fee!

Breakfasted here after a lovely walk through the gardens on a crisp Sunday morning. I had the fruit toast, which was delicious, but my friends raved about the homemade crumpets. Great coffee.

A charming botanic garden in the heart of Daylesford, a charming Victoria country town. Some beautiful old trees, impressive rhododendrons, a watch tower to climb for the views and a quaint little restaurant to have some tea make for a relaxing morning surrounded by birdsong.

Situated above the Convent Gallery, the Gardens are based on an old traditional (mainly Trees) style - there is a Café, open most afternoons. The lookout takes a bit to climb - and has good views over the countryside (township is covered by the trees!). Nice place to enjoy on a hot day...
