The Alfred Nicholas Memorial Gardens

Well-known for the gorgeous autumn colours and equally beautiful in the spring, the gardens are a special part of the hills. Paths wind down to the ornamental lake and, dare I say it, iconic boathouse. Alfred Nicholas is famous for the introduction of Aspro to Australia.

Areas of lawn for picnics and tables by the lake make this a super place for a day out. Public toilets at the top and middle sections.

  • Open from 10 am till 5 pm
  • Wheelchair Accessible in some areas from the top entrance and down to the lake, with caution and help as it is steep.
  • Dogs are allowed, on-leash

Parking & Public Transport

There is a parking area opposite the gardens, it is a reasonable size but fills quickly in peak times. Public Transport is available:

  • Catch a train to Upper Ferntree Gully and a connecting bus towards Sassafras. Get off at the Sherbrooke Road stop and walk down Sherbrooke Road for 10 minutes or so and the gardens are on the left. Bus service does operate down Sherbrooke Road (it goes from Olinda to Belgrave) but it does not operate on Sundays.
