Cool Climate Gardens Trail

Gardens in the Dandenong Ranges are sensational!

Nature's opera, where there is drama, colour and movement.

They punctuate our seasons perfectly and inspire all those that view them. Curated to entice us to walk through and imagine ourselves in a favourite story of our own whilst others tell wonderful stories of this place, its vast history and the people that helped settle it.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to storm damage, William Ricketts Sanctuary was extensively damaged, with many sculptures, buildings, pathways and handrails destroyed by numerous large fallen trees. It is currently closed. Visit Parks Victoria for further updates.

Additionally, since the publication of the downloadable map, we're excited to announce the opening of the Chelsea Australian Garden in Olinda, which will be added in our newest update.
