“Breathtaking bay views and stunning gardens”

Relaxing stroll through stunning gardens of such diversity with surprises wherever you look. Breathtaking bay views and amazing crater landscape and meandering ferny walks to discover birds and friendly animals and stunning sculptures. We were warmly greeted by Ann Maree who made us feel very welcome. A definite must see and experience for yourself.

“An absolute must do!!”

Why have we not heard of this place before?!
The thought, care and design of this place is amazing.

Meander through the beautiful gardens whilst the symphonic cacophony of sounds from birds frogs and bees relax and follow you on your journey through the different botanical areas.

The gardens compliment the stunning views of the peninsula from this place, definitely worth going on a nice clear day.

The owners are very friendly and accommodating with tea coffee and slices on arrival and an introduction to the four legged friends that wish to share ones slice and have a stick thrown or a pat, you’re made to feel very welcome.

Creativity and nature have worked here, and we would recommend a visit for sure. Certainly inspired me to do more at my place!

“Hidden paradise”

Cold weather, yet clear skies, allowed for amazing views around much of the Bay and along the Great Ocean Road coast from the many vantage points in this amazing garden paradise. Its a very special place to visit. Even at the end of winter, there was an abundance of colour in the gardens and a feast for the eyes at every turn.

“Something to amaze around every corner!”

We had a beautiful visit to Panorama gardens. It is amazing what Nick & Ann Maree have established here. It is well worth the visit particularly on a clear day when there is an amazing panorama across the coastline. Definitely will come back in the next season to see the change in the gardens.

“Breathtakingly beautiful”

This place is amazing. The views truly are panoramic. The owners have done all of this on their own and I am dumbfounded because it is beyond words. It’s a must see. The design and landscaping are amazing. To top off the natural beauty of this place, the owners were absolutely gorgeous. So welcoming and down to earth. We were greeted with morning tea and friendly smiles. What makes this place even better for an animal lovers like my partner and myself were the gorgeous animals ranging from pigs, to sheep, to dogs and even albino kangaroos and many more. As vegans it’s was very comforting to know these animals were kept in the up most conditions and were very well loved. HIGHLY recommend. To be honest, I want to go back already and I just left.

“The Peninsula’s Best Kept Secret”

It’s hard to find the words for this very special place, but I’ll start with amazing, wonderful and enchanting. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Ann-Maree’s warm hospitality, we could tell this was going to be a unique experience. Alpacas, chooks, Ned the swamp wallaby, a young ‘big red’ kangaroo, Sylvie the rescue pig running around like she was in the Olympic 200m… and that was just the first few minutes! Whilst the animals here are a great part of the estate (and there are many more to see and meet as you wander around), it’s the gardens, the inspirational layout and design that will captivate you. Nick is a man with an incredible vision and to think that he’s created this unique piece of paradise pretty much off his own bat will blow you away as you walk through every gate and around every corner. The vast array of plants and how they’re presented will make you say “wow” over and over again. Also, the views here are to die for. This is an absolute must visit if you’ve got a couple of hours to devote, but you make sure you book ahead of time.
