This garden is a bit of letdown. The lookout has been graffitied all over it and run down. The signage to get there is very poor. We had to ask a local where it was. Think there are far more interesting places in Daylesford to...More

Been to Daylesford many times and the last was our first visit here. What a surprise! It was hot but we spent some time walking in shade and admiring a wonderful garden. Really worth a visit, but pick a cool day.

Bit boring, long walk so take car instead. Tower ok. Rather walk around the lake. Map very hard to navigate. Hard to work out where north was

Calm relaxing and picturesque. Amazing views with fresh clean air to breathe. Most enjoyable adventure. Access via driving trail directly to lookout tower. Grounds immaculately maintained. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get out and about. Awesome cannon on location aswell. Two thumbs up.

Tranquil and relaxing, take the scenic drive, walk up the tower and down to the little waterfall nearby, such a beautiful place to relax with a book, or go for a walk or jog or even a picnic

Lovely stroll around the gardens! Definitely worth visiting taking the scenic drive along with exploring the gardens on foot. A very fun place, suitable for children too.

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