Daylesford - Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens




Locals and visitors have been enjoying the panoramic views and beautiful surrounds of the Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens since the 1860s. The 11 hectare gardens are perched high on the summit of an extinct volcano, it's the perfect spot for a picnic. Climb the Pioneers Lookout Tower for uninterrupted views of Daylesford town and surrounds, take in the colour and magnificent floral charms of Begonia House, or get a taste for local legend Alla Wolf-Tasker's cuisine at the Wombat Hill House cafe.

The Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens are also known as the Daylesford Botanic Gardens.

Review:


The centrepiece of the Gardens is a massive tall tower with 80 steps which wind up to the lookout area. It's not a climb for the claustrophobically inclined members of the family. There is also a Begonia Pavilion with a huge variety of begonias on display (although there is no access inside).

Other points of interest are a café, canon and other small artillery pieces, plenty of varieties of trees, pergolas, shelters with tables, shaded and unshaded tables, water tap and toilets. During Autumn there are a range of trees with lively Autumnal colours. We didn't notice any BBQs.
