Como GardensComo Gardens in the Dandenong Mountains is a beautiful historic garden established in 1873.
The garden holds two collections of plants, Magnolia and Prunus, which are registered with the Ornamental Plants Collection Association of Australia. There are over fifty-five Magnolias; some of these should still be in flower.
The museum houses some 16 odd cars, many of early historic significance as they played a major role in pioneering what we enjoy today in modern motoring.
A railway track and train station with 650 meters of track traverse over three creek trestle bridges, through an extended laburnum arch then back to the "Como Gardens"station, on a 7 1/4"track.
Como Gardens holds open days twice a year, during autumn and spring. We have enjoyed good patronage to these weekends where garden tours and rides on the miniature railway are popular favourites with visitors young and old.
During our open garden weekends we have frequent conducted tours of the vintage car museum professionally presented by Don Kinsey and Ron Simmons, both highly qualified on this subject and further supported by starting random cars on display, rotationally visiting cars at each event.
Open from 10.00am to 4.30pm
