Wombat Hill House
Garden

We are nestled in the beautiful Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens surrounded
by giant conifers recognised by the National Trust, lush greenery
and a myriad of other significant flowering plants.

A GARDEN WITHIN A GARDEN

Rich volcanic soil and a north facing aspect mean our little kitchen garden thrives in the warmer months with all sorts of herbs, vegetables, fruit, and flowers.  Pull up a chair beneath the creeping kiwi vine or beside the bountiful olive trees and enjoy the vibrant birdsong – especially in the mornings and later in the afternoon.

WOMBAT HILL BOTANIC GARDENS

The gardens of Wombat have always been a place of great enchantment. Is it that they sit on an ancient volcanic hill, drawing energies from millions of years past? Is it the breeze that whispers through the high limbs of ancient trees around the scenic drive? The fact that it receives the first and last rays of sun each day in our beautiful village of Daylesford?

Established in the 1860s by Baron Ferdinand Von Mueller (also responsible for Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens), the remarkable surrounding 10.4 hectares Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens are regarded as one of Victoria’s finest regional destination gardens. Many spots provide wonderful views over Daylesford and the surrounding countryside. Prized for their beauty and tranquillity, the gardens retain their gracious 19th-century character.

The botanical garden contains an outstanding collection of rare and notable specimens, many of which are included in the National Trust Register of Significant Trees. During spring and autumn, the Begonia House carries a magnificent display of prize blooms. Moreover, you can enjoy the panoramic view from the top of the Pioneers Lookout Tower.
