I have been coming here for years, and never cease to be amazed. The 'garden rooms,' with the colour-coding of plants into oranges, pinks, red, yellows, mauves and blues and whatever-have-you, are an absolute delight, and probably best seen in summer and autumn. The beech...More

Stunning garden full of color, variety of plants, light, semi rainforest atmosphere, views to the mountains and sculptures. Take about 1.5 hours to stroll in the gardens through the multiple "sections" that are full of various plantings, sculptures and with walks into the forest. Large...More

We enjoyed the gardens but thought that some of the gardens run by Parks Victoria were better and were free. Staff in gardens and shop very nice but would not go back to seasons restaurant

Amazing garden set in a traditional English style, the Australian way. Fabulous beech trees, lots of red maples, rhodedendrons and art works. Not suitable for disabled as on gravel and a slope.

A delightful experience even in winter. The gardens are set out in 'rooms' which you reach rambling by winding paths and rustic steps. Despite not being at their 'best' there is much to capture in photos; the first crocus buds, meadows of hardy daffodils, magnificent...More

Took Mum for breakfast which was really good. Especially impressed that tea cups were exactly that, thin and elegant. Service was great too!

I live at the foot of the mountain and cannot think of a caravan park that would suit, although many B&Bs in close proximity at various prices. Mt Dandenong is best suited to day tripping and Cloudehill is great for lunch... More
