Overview

Parks & gardens

Spot the similarities between Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens and the elegant regional civic gardens of Hamilton and Horsham, all designed by botanist William Guilfoyle.

Spring is a special time for Grampians visitors, providing a wonderful mix of opportunities to engage with the floral wealth of the region. Get to know your gum trees at the Peter Francis Points Arboretum in Coleraine, home to 500 different species of eucalyptus. Visit a wildflower farm at Wartook Gardens and see over 1,000 species of Australian plants.

See the hand of Edna Walling, Australia's pre-eminent landscape garden designer, in many of the private and public gardens across the Grampians region, especially in spring when many private gardens open to the public.

Be advised, some private gardens open their gates once or twice a year as part of the Australian Open Garden Scheme. For further details visit opengardensvictoria.org.au
