About the gardens

A fine example of a Federation landscape, the gardens feature expansive lawn areas surrounded by beautiful avenues of mature trees creating shady glades and pools of dappled sunlight.

Deep foliage and shrub borders surrounding the gardens offer brilliant splashes of seasonal colour. These magnificent gardens have a perennial border as a backdrop and a decorative rotunda overlooking the lily pond.

Named after Queen Alexandra, the gardens opened in 1908 and are designed in the formal style typical of the early 1900s.
