The Hamilton Botanic Gardens, located in the heart of Hamilton, are one of Victoria’s most intact 19th century Botanic Gardens, and are an important and long standing part of the Hamilton community.
Designed by William Guilfoyle, one of Australia’s greatest garden designers, the Hamilton Botanic Gardens include an impressive display of 19th century trees, an ornamental lake and a caretaker’s cottage dating from the 1870s. Guilfoyle’s original plan for the Gardens and accompanying letter still exist today and have been used to inform the newly adopted MasterPlan for the redevelopment of the Gardens.
The Master Plan for the Hamilton Botanic Gardens will guide its development over the next ten years, providing a structure for future works and management. It will build on the historic gardens, maintaining their heritage significance and well-loved features, while proposing new works which will further enhance these much loved gardens.
