George Tindale Gardens - Autumn

by Lorraine A (follow)
One of the smaller, but no less pretty gardens in the Dandenong Ranges is the George Tindale Memorial Gardens.



This garden is very nice in autumn with the various deciduous trees bursting with colour, though I still think that this particular garden is at its peak in spring, when the rhododendrons, camellias, bulbs and waratahs are in full bloom. My full review of the George Tindale Gardens, with pictures in spring can be found here.

Whilst the garden only covers 8.4 acres in total, there are many linking paths and gardens to explore.

These gardens were the creation of George Tindale (1903 - 1977) and his wife Margaret Ruth Adams. George's passion of ornamental horticulture led him to buy Pallants Hill in 1958 (now known as the George Tindale Memorial Gardens). In 1961 George married Margaret Ruth Adams, an artist who added several of her sculptures to the garden that are still on display.



One of my favourite sculptures in the George Tindale
Gardens is the rock below. It looks solid and impossible to shift...but with a gentle push it rotates 360 degrees and blows the kids minds every time!



If you are planning on having a picnic in this garden than I suggest taking a picnic rug and enjoying it on the front lawn (as it's nice and flat), or in the gazebo closer to the house.

The garden has some stairs (which can be avoided) though some paths could be considered to be steep in sections. If you can, it's best to explore without a pram.

A more pram friendly option would be the nearby Rhododendron Gardens.
