Took my sister and family there a while back during the summer months for a picnic. Kids had a ball and we walked around the whole place and by the water also. Thoroughly enjoyed the place. Thanks Colac... will be back for sure.

If you are looking for a place to enjoy nature, take your dog for a walk or have a picnic, look no further because, this is as good as it gets. And it's not crowded like a lot of city garden's.

We had driven to Colac to get to the Red Rock Lookout and then found this place. A lovely large wetland area with many paths and good photographic opportunities. Most enjoyable.

Whether you're out for a stroll or you take a small interest in botany this is the place for you. Playground, a large area for kicking the footy and cool plants all around. Cafe in the gardens too, not many places i'd rather be in...More

These botanical gardens are beautiful. Easy access for anyone. Plenty of signs and seats for you to relax and enjoy the views. Right next to Lake Colac so more views to enjoy. Worth the visit
