Bendigo Botanic Gardens

Now called the Bendigo Botanic Gardens, White Hills, this botanic garden was one of the earliest established in Victoria. It was gazetted in 1857 which was just seven years after gold was first discovered in nearby Golden Square and one year after the original Sandhurst Municipal Council was established. The municipality was prospering from the gold-rush and the botanic gardens were the first of three gardens that were founded, the other two being Rosalind Park and Lake Weeroona.
