Friends of Buninyong Botanic Gardens



The Gardens are a focal point for local residents and visitors to enjoy a relaxing walk.

Autumn's golden carpet beside the old swimming baths, now a formal garden, sometimes used by residents for weddings.

Soft fill has been added around the swings and a base installed for the new digger. Thanks to the City of Ballarat.

The new seat funded by the Friends of the Buninyong Botanic Gardens which was recently installed.

About Us

The Buninyong Botanic Gardens are amongst the best preserved of Victoria’s provincial 19th century botanical gardens.   The Buninyong Gardens (incorporating The Gong) possess an impressive collection of pines, conifers  and maples.  Four specimen maple trees are registered on the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) Register of Significant Trees.  The Gardens have long had an important social and celebrative role in the Buninyong community.  They are of historical and environmental significance to the whole state of Victoria and are included on Heritage Victoria’s Register.
