Fodor's Review

The expansive gardens contain thousands of rhododendrons, azaleas, and camellias; in spring they put on spectacular white, mauve, yellow, and pink blooms. Several miles 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.
