Small gardens overlooking the lake. Absolutely delightful walk. We had coffee at the cafe then took a walk and several photos. A little treasure to explore.

A fascinating array of plants and trees from all over the world. A lovely spot for a picnic, morning stroll, or a relaxing afternoon nap. Nice viewing point for Lake Colac.
