Fodor's Review

The expansive gardens contain thousands of rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias; in spring they put on a spectacular show of white, mauve, yellow and pink blooms. Several kilometers of walking trails lead to vistas over the Yarra Valley, and the small Garden Explorer bus also provides transportation around the property in the springtime peak from mid-September to early November. The gardens are a short stroll from Olinda village. For a perfect afternoon, combine your visit

with tea and scones in one of the little cafés around town.
