Geelong Botanic Gardens

About Geelong Botanic Gardens

Geelong’s Botanic Gardens, established in 1851 and located on Eastern Hill by the shores of Corio Bay, is Victoria’s oldest botanical oasis. The area has been traditionally cared for over 60,000 years by the Wadawurrung (Wathaurong) people who used it as a source to provide food, medicine, tools and clothing, with their middens near the gardens providing evidence of this rich diet including plants, seafood and land animals.

Geelong Botanic Gardens are a lush oasis nestled in the heart of Victoria’s second-largest city. Spanning nearly 70 acres, these beautiful gardens were first founded as far back as 1850 – making them among Australia’s oldest and most treasured attractions. Explore Eastern Park while taking in breathtaking views that showcase nature at its finest!
