Located next to Geelong's popular Eastern Beach Reserve, the Geelong Botanic Gardens spans over seven hectares and is great for picnicking, walking, bird-spotting, and more.

First opened in 1851, the gardens feature many heritage trees (and a handful of built heritage items, too), as well as special collections of geraniums, sage and heritage roses.

Whether you want to have a self-guided tour, participate in an educational program or take a guided walk, pop into the charming on-site teahouse when you're done for a bite to eat and a cuppa.
