Nature & wildlife

Encounter spellbinding surrounds cultivated, landscaped or natural by design in the Goldfields region.


Stroll through one of the local botanical gardens in Bendigo, Ballarat, Buninyong or Castlemaine. Still thriving 150 years after being created by early residents of the region, these gardens are a great place to unwind and recharge. If you're visiting the area in March, be sure to explore the Ballarat Botanical Gardens and see the renowned annual begonia display. In spring, see Rosalind Park's tens of thousands of blooming tulips lining Bendigo's Pall Mall.

Walk your own path

Head out of town to discover national and state parks with dazzling wildflowers, abundant wildlife and stunning scenery. A centrepiece of the region's cultural landscape is the Goldfields Track. The 210km track links Ballarat and Bendigo through Daylesford and Castlemaine, taking in part of the Great Dividing Trail.

Tracks and trails

Mountain bike or bushwalk across a series of landscapes including ironbark and stringybark forests. The track sparkles with colour in late winter when the golden wattles are in bloom, and then in springtime hundreds of vibrant wildflowers adorn the trail.
