With beautiful water views over Lake Macdonald, the gardens are a great location for a leisurely stroll or family picnic. Drinking water, tables and shelters are available in the gardens and bench seats scattered throughout offer a place to enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Graded pathways make access a breeze and a disabled access toilet is available within the gardens.

There are no barbecue facilities in the gardens, however there are two electric barbecues located in the adjoining foreshore park next to the boat ramp.


A bus and car park is located at the entry to the gardens off Lake Macdonald Drive. Vehicles are not permitted to drive into the gardens, however you can make special arrangements for tour groups to set-down and pick-up disabled or elderly patrons. Please give reasonable notice for these arrangements. Tour groups, wedding parties and event personnel must make prior arrangements before visiting and should note that a 22 seater bus is the largest vehicle able to drive into the gardens.

Pet Dogs

You are welcome to bring your pet dog along with you to the park so that you can both enjoy the Botanic Gardens.
Dogs must be kept on a leash and droppings must be cleaned up immediately by the pet owner. Pooch Poo bags are available for free at the dispensers at each entrance.
