Dandenong Ranges Botanic Gardens

Enjoy a tour, or just take a stroll through 40 hectares of scenic botanic gardens or a picnic by the lake and take in stunning views of the Australian Alps.

The Dandenong Ranges Botanic Gardens are host to brilliantly coloured blooms of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, cherries and daffodils. Seasonal changes ensure the gardens are a delight all year around.

When not in bloom, you can still soak in the beauty of rich bark textures, seed capsules, foliage shapes and beautiful fragrance as you stroll through the grounds.

Garden Explorer
The Garden Explorer is a bus tour through the park offering a 20 minute tour of gardens during the spring peak flowering season (mid September to mid November). It provides a comfortable and protected vantage point to passengers sitting high to better view the magnificent garden.
