Join a walking tour at Castlemaine Botanical Gardens

Couple walking at gardens

Thursday 21 December 2017

Put on your walking shoes and join a free guided tour of the beautiful Castlemaine Botanical Gardens in January as part of Castlemaine District Community Health’s monthly walk series.

“The annual botanical gardens walk is a fun way to get active and meet new people in your community, said Liza Shaw, Health Promotion Officer, Castlemaine District Community Health.

“The gentle walk is for people of all ages and abilities and will take about an hour.”

“It will be led by the Team Leader Botanical Gardens and Urban Horticulture Gillian Miller so it is a wonderful way to learn more about the historic gardens,” she said.

The heritage-listed gardens are home to an impressive collective of native and exotic trees. The gardens feature formal garden beds, oak and elm avenues, Lake Joanna, the old tea rooms, a majestic fountain and meandering creek.

While there is plenty of shade in the gardens, don’t forget to bring your hat and water bottle.
