White Hills Botanical Gardens

Hours: 9.00am - 7.00pm
Description: The botanical Gardens were laid in the 1870s by Ferdinand von Mueller, the Government Botanist who played a prominent role in the early development of Melbourne's Royal Botanical Gardens.

The Gardens were designed in the formal nineteenth century style as a kind of living scientific exhibition, with exotic species arranged according to rigorous principles of classification. Some of the original trees surviving in the Gardens are now extremely rare.

Since von Mueller's time, the Gardens have become a popular picnic spot with recreational facilities including a swimming pool and small menagerie with wildlife and walk-through aviaries.
