After heading out for a morning bushwalk along the Victoria Dam Trail we needed a coffee and conveniently Masonmill Gardens was just minutes down the road. The small cafe area has tables outside overlooking the beautiful gardens and once we had our caffeine fix we had a wander around.
There is an 18 hole mini golf course set amongst the gardens and a bouncy castle to keep the kids entertained for a while. There is also a nature playground area near the restaurant but this is one area we could not access due to building works on site.
The rest of the gardens were beautiful in mid autumn. Access to some of the gardens was restricted due to building and renovation works but we managed to get a peek at most of them. I particularly loved the koi ponds.
There is also an Irish themed beer garden, restaurant and craft shop. Please check the Masonmill Gardens website though for opening times as these vary.
Masonmill Gardens is at 40 Masonmill Road in Carmel.
To explore more of the timber milling history of this area explore the Mason and Bird Heritage Trail or the Kattamordo Heritage Trail.
