Port Fairy’s Botanic Gardens

Established in 1859, Port Fairy’s Botanic Gardens were once described as “the handsomest of any provincial town”.

About

Still picturesque, the gardens have been drastically reduced in size. The first plants and seeds were supplied by Ferdinand von Mueller, the director of the Melbourne Botanic Gardens and a noted botanist, and GW Francis, curator of the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, while a $5000 government grant enabled the erection of gates and fences.
