Benalla Botanical Gardens

The Benalla Botanical Gardens were designed and developed in 1886 by Alfred Sangwell and were listed on the Register of the National Estate in 1995. They are significant because much of their original layout remains intact and are notably unusual for their combination of ornamental gardens, with a large oval described as the most picturesque cricket ground in the country.

The Rose Garden, first established in 1959, is an icon in Benalla. Rose fanciers will find a notable collection of modern varieties, including Australian roses, seldom found in public gardens.

Extensive lawns sweep down to Lake Benalla, creating an open parkland beneath the trees, which were part of the original planting. Wide curving pathways meander through beds of shrubs and perennial plantings.

The Gardens connect to the Lake Benalla Walk which traverses 4.2 kilometres of diverse and picturesque landscapes including remnant river red gum forest and the Indigenous Community Gardens.
