“Something for the whole Family”

What a spectacular place, and all the more so when you realise that it’s privately owned.
Years of hard work have obviously gone into turning the property into a beautiful garden. Lots of inspiration for the budding gardener!

No matter what your age you are there is something here for the whole family to enjoy. There is even a fairy garden for children.
Plenty of well placed seating makes for an easily stroll through the large garden, and many animals to visit also.

“Gardens full of surprises”

Visited these gardens and was amazed at every turn. One garden followed onto the next and we were constantly surprised when they kept opening to yet another garden. The views that unfolded as we walked were amazing looking west to the horizon over Port Phillip Bay and Bass Straight.
The kids loved all the animals and being able to nurse and pat the small ones. It was the first time I saw white kangaroos, who knew there where???

“A wonderland”

This is a new must do on the Mornington Peninsula. Extensive gardens with sweeping views and the most amazing collection of super friendly animals. The owners are so sweet and enthusiastic. We loved it.

“Amazing Gardens…..Incredible views……Breathtaking”

My wife and I visited Panorama Garden Estate with our two young girls. We had a great afternoon, we were lucky with the weather, which allowed us to see the full beauty of this incredible garden attraction with fabulous views across Mornington Peninsula.

The animals were a big hit with the kids, as was the garden walk through the rainforest. You’d think you were in tropical queensland. Highly recommend this place for a visit.

“Byron bay family”

Entered the property and did not know what to expect. Greeted with a big smile and was shown around. First stop the animals .. they are everywhere. Sheep you can pat to silvie the pig who again you can touch and follows you around lol donkeys/chickens and even up close with alpacas plus plenty more. My 2yr old and 3yr old loved it!
After this started a walk around the property .. it is mind blowing. . Nothing like i have ever seen before. The craftsmanship is incredible. Has spots where you can relax by the dam / rose gardens and universal garden and even better i call it jurassic park section whilst spotting a white kanga or even deer. I believe the cows are friendly too.
100% take a picnic and enjoy this property with ocean views. Thank you to the owners for allowing our family to have the best day out with nature on the mornington peninsula. 120% must do.
