The Alfred Nicholas Gardens, a historic part of the Dandenongs History.
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.
The pathway down to the lake is quite steep. Please allow for this if using a wheelchair, unstable or not very fit. It is possible to park a car on Poet’s Lane by a small gate that leads onto an open lawn area. The option to collect passengers there if required is available.
Open from 10 am till 5 pm
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
