These gardens are lovely for the whole family, with lots of areas to explore, different garden areas for those interested in the botanical aspects, places for picnics and for play. We enjoyed a picnic in the rotunda and getting lost in the fern valley.

Have a Brunch in this Cafe in Wombat Hill Botanical Garden. The place is very accommodating, homely set up and warm on this wintry day. Food is average but the atmosphere made up to good part of it. Worth a visit for coffee or tea.
