Emerald Museum and Nobelius Heritage Park (Emerald)



Nobelius Heritage Park and Emerald Museum, two of Cardinia Shire’s hidden gems, are located adjacent to the Emerald Lake Park.

Emerald Museum - The museum is set within the beautiful and historic park and tells the story of Emerald and district’s colourful past through displays of memorabilia, photographs and documents, dating from early Aboriginal hunting to present day.

Nobelius Heritage Park - The park offers picnic facilities along with several walking trails amongst plantings of fruit, native and ornamental trees along with lavender, rosemary and salvias.

The park is listed by Heritage Victoria as of state significance as it represents the once famous Gembrook Nursery that started in 1886 by Swedish immigrant Carl Axel Nobelius and was the largest in the southern hemisphere at the time. At its peak the nursery covered more than 40 hectares and included what is now Emerald Lake Park and Emerald Country Club.

It is is now four and a half hectares and is preserved as a remnant of this historic enterprise, with many specimens of trees once stocked by the nursery
