Ballarat Botanical Gardens - Review

Sprawling over 40 ha, the Ballarat Botanical Garden is one of Australia’s most significant cool climate gardens. The four conservatories display seasonal flowers all around the year. In summer there are Hydrangeas, Fuchsias, Pelargoniums; in Autumn there is Tuberous Begonia; in May there is Chrysanthemum; in Winter there are Cyclamen, Cineria, Primula and in Spring there are Schizanthus and Spring bulbs. One of the most significant events that take place here is the popular Ballarat Begonia Festival, where Begonias are displayed along with gardening advice, family entertainment, kid’s activities and Begonia Parade. Summer Sundays feature music shows and vendors selling various items. The Smart Living Market is another attraction where you will find fresh fruits, vegetables, drinks, and meal. The Prime Ministers Avenue displays 28 bronze portraits of the Prime Ministers. The statues amid the flowerbeds are also beautiful. You can rent the garden for wedding and parties too.

Ballarat Botanical Gardens, Ballarat Reviews

  • Best place to hang out or enjoy a morning walk. Green house is warm for having a break after run or exercise. This historical garden will give you about Ballarat in the past and so many kinds of plants. Marble Statues are amazingly beautiful. Just come to see something green. On weekend you can enjoy a farmer market along the lake, too.

  • Great place for a quiet walk, sniff a few herbs in the sensory garden, check out the amazing sculpturing craftsmanship of the various marble statues or the busts of our Prime Ministers from Federation to now. There's a Cafe across the road, why not pop on over for a coffee and a cake or something more substantial. You could relax (half your luck) and enjoy watching your kids play in the huge playground or stroll around Lake Wendouree. Enjoy a BBQ or picnic with your family, friends or that special someone. It's all there just waiting for you...

  • So pretty! Was a great way to spend an afternoon. Would be absolutely stunning when all the flowers are in bloom.

  • Absolutely amazing place. The garden is beautiful. Huge variety of plants. The prime minister walk in interesting. The little craft shop is so cute. Will be returning before we leave!

  • We LOVE family outings to the gardens! Great for picnics or just exploring. Don't forget to check out the fish pond :)
