Change of Conditions

    Closure of Dandenong Ranges Botanic Garden

    In response to advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, Parks Victoria has decided to close high visitation sites with a typical attendance of over 500 people. This includes Dandenong Ranges Botanic Garden which will be closed until further notice. For more information, please visit www.parks.vic.gov.au/covid19

    Temporary Toilet Block Closure

    The Maddenii Toilet Block (at the far northern end of the garden) is currently closed.  Please use the three other toilet locations on site.

    What's flowering

    Find out what's in bloom with the latest spring flowering information (PDF).
     
    Predicting flower blooms can be difficult because the ‘arrival date’ depends on the previous 12-months weather conditions.  Also, current weather conditions (heat, cold, rain, wind) effect the duration of any bloom. Whatever time of year, there is always something to see at the Dandenong Ranges Botanic Garden.

    Opening hours

    The Dandenong Ranges Botanic Garden is open daily from 10am to 5pm (last entry 4:30pm) except Christmas Day, days of Total Fire Ban and Severe Weather events. Entrance to the garden is free. Check current conditions on the day of your planned visit to confirm it is open.
