There are Indigenous plantings, including creek and lake rehabilitation, Indigenous Grassland and the Koori Student Garden.
Marvel at the magnificent old River Red Gums. Explore the Victorian Volcanic Plains Garden, Indigenous Peoples Garden, Bushfoods Garden, Sensory Garden, West Australian/South Australian Gardens, Southern African Garden, Mediterranean Garden and Californian, Central and South American bed.
There are walking tracks throughout the garden, the terrain is easy and accessible, including a 1km circuit around the lake. Dogs are welcome on a leash, please pick up after them. Off-street parking, toilet and BBQ facilities are available on site. Meet at garden end of car park.
