This was probably one of the first gardens we came across, when regularly visiting the area in 2009, as we were house hunting for a small acreage and home. We had to wait for the open inspection time so drove around a few streets to get a feel for the area and came across this garden. It was Autumn time and so the tree leaves were turning colour.

It was views like this pathway below that heightened the senses about the area into which we were about to move.

The Dandenong Ranges is known for its Autumn colours and certainly puts on quite a display.

A small garden in comparison to some others in the ranges (only 3.3 ha), it still has a great deal to offer and view, providing places to sit down, have picnics, for children to run around, or just wander along the pathways.

I love to walk along looking at the plant and bush displays, the occasional statue, the way that flowers pop here and there, and the general peaceful solitude of the place.

This is a place you can push prams around or wheelchairs so that those who would normally miss out, can enjoy such a beautiful garden.

And if you're prepared to get down to ground level you can see some lovely sights that normally would get missed by most.

Katie reading your tips about George Tindale gardens from 2009 and it got me thinking; I might take a drive.
It also got me thinking, did you end up buying in the Dandenong Ranges. If so, where? And would you recommend? And did you stay?
