A must see garden made at the top of The Dandenong Ranges where a maze of stone walls and jewel like garden rooms are set within woodlands of magnificent and historic, cool climate trees.
The many linking paths through this garden take you beneath a canopy of the awesome mountain ash trees of the Dandenong Ranges. The garden was part of the historic Burnham Beeches Estate, home of Alfred Nicholas, developer of the Aspro formula. It is known for its extensive water features including waterfalls and an ornamental lake complete with boathouse.
The National Rhododendron Gardens are host to an unparalleled variety of brilliantly coloured blooms, mainly rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, and daffodils. Of international reputation, these magnificent gardens attract 50,000 to 60,000 visitors annually to the Dandenong ranges.
Designed to take advantage of the steep slopes, the 11 hectare terraced gardens of Pirianda are distinctive for their combination of botanically important trees, shrubs and perennials with an overstorey of large blackwoods and mountain ash towering over the natural fern gullies of the Dandenong Ranges. The garden is particularly beautiful in autumn when the trees change colour to the many hues of orange, red and yellow.
With 200 acres of woodland to choose from, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding the perfect picnic spot where you can enjoy the lush mix of native and exotic trees on offer. And don’t forget to view the grove of oaks in Autumn. The RJ Hamer Arboretum land is a small part of the original Dandenong and Woori Yallock State forest, proclaimed over 110 years ago.
