Spacious garden with beautiful old trees. The track around it is perfect for a jog. Best in autumn or spring (can get hot in summer). It's very close to the castlemain mill, where you can get some nice food/drinks.

Every Saturday morning at 8am anyone can come to the.Botanc Gardens and participate in a timed 5km run/jog/walk. Participants are mindful of other Park users. The gardens are beautiful in all seasons, but colour is spectacular in Autumn.

Like many of the surrounding goldfields towns Castlemaine is lucky to have its own Botanical Gardens. Wonderful to wander in all seasons and a wonderful playground and good BBQ facilities.
