An opportunity for locals and visitors to Ballarat to take a leisurely stroll through the gardens with a guide and find out more about the history and stories of our trees, statues and the changes and development underway in the gardens.  Your guide will show you the highlights of this beautiful heritage listed garden.  There is no need to book.  Just turn up at the Conservatory and a guide will be there to take you on the tour.  The tour lasts about an hour.  (Covid restrictions will mean a limit on numbers to 10 and participants are to be masked and practice social distancing.)
