Dandenong Ranges Botanic Garden
Time Out says
Sitting pretty on a hilltop in the Dandenong Ranges are the rock gardens, fern gullies and bountiful lawns that make up the Dandenong Ranges Botanic Gardens.
This botanic garden was only christened a botanic garden in 2017, as it was previously known as the National Rhododendron Garden. These days you’ll find more than just rhododendrons, with azaleas, camellias, cherries and daffodils providing some delicious rainbow colour to the grounds.
The gardens boast an impressive collection of rare and exotic plants too, the majority of which are endangered. Luckily these plants have adapted to the Dandenong Ranges’ relatively cool climate temperature.
