The gardens is one of the jewels of the Dandenong Ranges. It is particularly stunning in Autumn, with the changing colours of maples and beeches, and in spring the park blooms with azaleas and cherry trees.

The large garden was part of the historic Burnham Beeches Estate, home of Alfred Nicholas, developer of the Aspro formula. It is over 13 hectares but you shouldn’t miss the ornamental lake with boathouse at the bottom of the hill.

Make it your first stop as what goes down must come up….and it’s better that you tackle the uphill climb while little legs still have energy.

On the upper levels of the garden you’ll find a small pond with sculptures as well as many paths leading under the canopy of mountain ash trees.
