historic private garden that is acknowledged as one of the most beautiful in Australia.

Forest Glade Gardens are almost one hundred years old covering around 6 hectares or 14.5 acres.

Located on the southern slopes of Mount Macedon it embraces a mixture of landscaping styles taking inspiration from English, Italian and woodland traditions.

There are four distinct themes:

  • The large English section with its huge exotic trees
  • The delightful Japanese section complete with bonsai house
  • The beautiful woodland area displaying masses of shade-loving plants
  • The cool fern gully

There are no bad times to visit Forest Glade Gardens – in autumn the various maples are a riot of colour, while in spring the rhododendrons, azaleas and peonies are a sight to see. Both summer and winter bring their own very special treats for garden lovers.

Anyone is welcome at Forest Glade Gardens from individuals to families to larger tour groups.
