Details: The Burnley Gardens in Richmond date back to 1861 when the Horticulture Society of Victoria established experimental gardens. The aim was to introduce new plants to the colonies, and to promote botanical and horticultural science. The land was granted to the Society on the basis that a portion of the   gardens remain open to the public, and this has continued to the present day. Tours available.  Experience the Shady Walk, stroll past the Luffman Ponds, listen to the birds in the Native Garden,  wonder at the beauty of the Heritage listed trees, and find plants from many different areas of the world.
