Alfred Nicholas Memorial Gardens
Alfred Nicholas Gardens are in Sherbrooke in the Dandenong Ranges near Kallista, about an hour's drive from Melbourne.
The gardens cover a massive 13 hectares of plantings including Australian native plants. The many linking paths through this garden take you beneath a canopy of awesome Mountain Ash Trees.
Walk through shady trees down to the picturesque lake, and picnic by the quaint boathouse.
In spring, view the flowering azaleas, cherry trees and viburnum.
