Kyneton Botanic Gardens date back to 1858 and are among the finest in Victoria’s small goldfields towns. They contain magnificent mature trees set in lawns sloping down to the Campaspe River. Seventeen of the trees have been listed as significant, including the endangered Chilean Wine Palm.
The Friends of Kyneton Botanic Gardens aims to raise community awareness and increase public use of the gardens. It hosts events in order to contribute to ongoing projects, such as the masterplan for the Gardens’ development.
Kyneton Botanic Gardens is located on the traditional lands of the Taungurung people and the Friends of Kyneton Botanic Gardens wish to acknowledge them as Traditional Owners. The Friends of Kyneton Botanic Gardens would also like to pay respects to their Elders, past and present, and the Elders from other communities.
The Friends wish to extend their thanks to Simon Griffiths for the beautiful photographs contributed to this site
