Explore the delightful exotic and indigenous gardens along a network of walking tracks, where hidden gems, such as sculptures by William Ricketts, reward the keen eye.
In Spring, enjoy the colour as the trees and shrubs begin to flower in late August. Summer provides a cooler environment than the surrounding coast at 305m above sea level. Deciduous trees delight in Autumn, and the bare birch and willow branches contrast against the pine in Winter.
The gardens are popular for picnics with tables, electric barbecues and toilets available adjacent to the car park. Disabled access is available to facilities and walking tracks.
The gardens at Seawinds were developed by Sir Thomas and Lady Travers from 1946. The Travers imported deciduous trees from their property in Parkville and purchase the William Ricketts sculptures from William Ricketts himself.
