ballarat botanical gardens, ballarat

Mamma loves a good garden and this is one of our families favourite spots to picnic, play and chill out. It has everything you could imagine that a botanical garden has - shady trees, lush green grass, gorgeous plants, ponds, fountains, gazebo's statues the prime minister avenue , fernery and more. Mamma loves the conservatory and beautiful statues hidden throughout the garden.Oh and on Sundays in Autumn and Spring why not take a guided Sunday walk -  No booking required - Sunday morning at 11 am. General tour but with an emphasis on the garden’s seasonal highlights at the time of the tour. No charge but donation appreciated.

Mamma's special mentions: The Ballarat botanical gardens is across the road from Lake Wendouree's Adventure Park and also plays host to heaps of fun throughout the year including the amazing annual Begonia Festival
