Geelong Botanical Gardens - Review
The Botanical Gardens are an ideal place to take a leisurely stroll. Adjacent to Corio Bay, it offers a great opportunity to enjoy the variety of trees and plants. The children's garden is particularly fun for kids. The gardeners here are very knowledgeable and will be delighted to talk with you about local conditions and plants if you are interested in the subject. Many of the trees here are heritage listed and guided tours are available. There is also a greenhouse on site. You can also spot local birds like piwis & magpies, honeyeaters and ravens.

Geelong Botanical Gardens, Geelong Reviews
The fact that this cafe is in such beautiful place means it's worth visiting. I didn't get a coffee on my last visit however I have had coffee there in the past which was good. My daughter had a hot chocolate and was happy with it! But yes, if you get the opportunity to go there and walk around the gardens you won't regret it. Very grounding and soothing place to be
Lovely garden, and a beautiful place for a wedding. The paths and plants really make you feel in a secluded and we'll shaded natural garden, using a relatively small space really well. There are toilets, but they are just rudimentary, i found them clean. Some lovely little shelters and rotunda dotted around. And the gates at the entry overlook the bay. We really enjoyed it.
Very cool botanical gardens, with interesting self guided walks containing lots of information. The gardens are cared for with love and it shows.
A rich variety of different shrubs and trees, very peaceful and numerous native species as well. Fantastic on a cool winters day.
Beautiful, well kept botanical gardens with lots of small paths and areas to sneak off to and see the beautiful birds and butterflies that are attracted to the area. I would advise picking up the map so you can check out the special plants that are there - I can't remember exactly, but there's a good number of heritage listed trees that are worth seeing just because you may find it hard to see them elsewhere! A giant redwood (Sequoia) is one of the areas, which is definitely worth seeing as well as a plant that looks like it's being chained to the ground - I don't remember what it's called but it looks impressive and I've definitely never seen one before! A bonus is that entrance is free and there is a small outdoor cafe that I assume is open seasonally (?) - sadly it wasn't open when I was visiting. It also wasn't crowded when I visited, which made the experience even more enjoyable. With its location so close to the waterfront, it's worth visiting if you're in the area to take a break or just to see the butterflies!
