Melbourne has so many hidden nature treasures and we love discovering them. This time we ventured towards the National Rhododendron Gardens. I never visited these gardens before and after our visit, I was amazed at the beauty of the whole place.

Tall trees of Dandenong Ranges

The drive was beautiful through the tall trees of Dandenong Ranges and sun peeking through them. These gardens are located in the town of Olinda and I love this place for its laidback relaxed ambience.

The beauties

The gardens are over 104 acres and have some amazing views of Dandenong Ranges. You can't have enough time to see the beauty of the Azaleas, Rhododendrons and Daffodils.

You can have an awesome picnic lunch in the gardens, there are many picnic tables and open lawn areas to sit and relax.

We didn't want to leave but had to because the gardens close at 5:00p.m and while driving back we stopped to get a bigger view from the top.

It was the most relaxing and amazing trip and I would surely recommend them for a getaway from the city.
