wombat hill botanical gardens, daylesford

Mamma loves a good garden adventure and this magical wonderland perched on the top of Wombat Hill (an old extinct volcano) is no exception. As with everything in Daylesford, it is picture perfect with rolling green hills - perfect for a tumble - and cubby houses made by the draping greenery. You can take a lovely drive up to the car park or enter via the side entrances on foot. 

Mamma's special mention: Wombat Hill House is nestled onto the heart of the gardens and the perfect spot to stop for lunch or a mid morning or afternoon snack. Mamma didn't get a chance to stop in this time but will be back for a FULL review.
