There’s a lot of gardens to visit in the Dandenong Ranges. You could pick almost any major road and see a sign leading to a garden to visit. Alfred Nicholas gardens is just out of Kallista heading up towards Olinda and is worth visiting. You could come across any number of photographers at one of the ponds or lakes almost any day. I like visiting early in the morning but all times of the day are good. The following gives you a bit of an idea of what you can expect to see. It’s a great place for picnics, walks, and family time together.
