The Geelong Botanical Gardens are just stunning. There is bits for everyone from rose gardens, exotic plants, paths to wander of the little cafe to have a drink. This site is maintained to an exceptional standard and should be on any visitors list.

Was very suprised at how good it was. It's not huge, but they've gone for quality over quantity. The place is immaculate.
We went at 5pm on a Monday afternoon and were there for 30 minutes before we saw anyone else. Very peaceful.
Free to enter.

What a great Botanical garden
It may not be huge but you can spend a reasonable amount of time wandering around the compact pathways cram packed with various plants. I was so immersed in my exploration and discovery and picture taking that I didn’t get to explore the whole garden. I will return one day.

Stunning and I loved that nearly every plant was labeled with its name, scientific reference and place of origin.

We visited the gardens whilst on a short break in Geelong. We have a 13, 15 and 6 year old. Everyone loved walking through the gardens looking at the variety of plants. Especially when they had grown to a size we had not seen before. The gardens provoked great imagination with all the kids and amazing stories and discussions were held about the different species of plants we saw. The kids also enjoyed finding different insects that live within the gardens. For those who are allergic to bee be careful when walking down the left hand side path. There is a huge Berns nest in the the knot of the tree just past the bottle trees
