Wander Victoria at its botanical best in spring. Flower shows and festivals spring up in regional villages, private gardens fling open their gates to show off their blooms and historic botanic gardens embrace the change of season. Ring in spring and see Victoria in full bloom.

Gardens galore

Stroll among lush landscaped lawns, stunning floral displays and centuries-old trees at historic and botanic gardens.

In the Dandenong Ranges, celebrate cherry blossom season (September) with a picnic and festival at the National Rhododendron Gardens, Olinda, home to tens of thousands of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias and daffodils. Meander among stone walls, hedges and overflowing garden rooms at nearby Cloudehill Gardens, and the linking paths that wend through the Alfred Nicholas Gardens, Sherbrooke.

Make a weekend of exploring the beautifully ornate gardens of the Goldfields. Put the Ballarat and Castlemaine botanical gardens on your bouquet list and allow plenty of time for the acres of open spaces at Rosalind Park, Bendigo.

On the Mornington Peninsula, take in the hues and views at Heronswood House and Garden, and lose yourself in the wonderfully fragrant Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens.

Lavender fields at Lavandula Swiss-Italian Farm will lead you to Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges, where you'll see the Garden of St Erth carpeted with daffodils each September.


Time your wander with open garden weekends and flower festivals.

Bulb lovers, tip-toe through the Tesselaar Tulip Festival and the Bendigo Annual Tulips Display, both in September and October, and the Kyneton Daffodil and Arts Festival (September). See orchids in all their elegance at Wangaratta Orchid Show (September) and the Horsham & District Annual Spring Orchid Show (October), and find blossoms at Rayners Orchard.

Wildflowers and native flowers are in full bloom across the landscape in spring, and in curated form at the Wildflower Show at Inglewood in September and the Pomonal Native Flower Show in October.

Mini flower festivals of their own, open garden weekends invite all to admire their blooms: explore Alexandra, Wedderburn, Rutherglen and Creswick, and treat yourself to the 'secret' gardens of the Dandenong Ranges.
