“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!

I have very seldom felt so welcome with strangers. Instant feeling of delight at the location the concept and the invitation to be part of a family of people and pets.
The owners have developed a concept that I had total appreciation of. The tour by necessity is in a small group so the feeling of belonging is strong.
I would have a very hard time trying to describe the Panorama Garden Estate but have no hesitation in recommending it 100%


“Absolutely superb day trip”

Panorama Garden Estate is a perfect destination for a 1 day trip or even more. We had an amazing experience in our family day trip and thanks to our wonderful hosts Nick and Anne Marie who helped and guided us to discover the beauty of the nature in such a fantastic place on earth. We have been captured by the elegance of the gardens all in different styles offering a large inspiration for everyone who has the privilege to see them , we enjoyed a very delicious traditional and organic Aussie BBQ lunch and our children couldn’t be more happier to have the chance to see and play in real with the animals . We even spotted a baby deer among other beautiful wildlife such as the white kangaroo and many more including the 4 loyal dogs of the family . I strongly recommend to do yourself a favor and put this destination on your must list .Big thanks for a great family Sunday to Panorama Garden Estate. We will return soon.



Beautiful nature garden in Melbourne. Perfect for taking time out from the city. Amazing views, albino kangaroos and more

“A un forgettable day!”

Panorama Garden Estate would have to be one of the most amazing spots on the mornington peninsular, from the garden walks, to the amazing rare animals to the epic views. This gem of a place is a must visit.

One of the most Beautiful places I’ve been in Victoria if not Australia! This place is incredible hand built and so much hard work put into this place over many years I can only imagine! Impressive!


“Paradise found at Panorama Garden Estate”

From the moment you enter the gate you’ve entered an amazingly spectacular picturesque estate. From the many friendly animals that greet you to the wonderful gardens that take your breathe away. Panorama Garden Estate is a must see – with heaven sent views overlooking Port Phillip Bay and surrounds every nook and cranny is well thought through, as you meander through the many garden nooks from the crater garden to the fairy, gorgeous rose garden, dams and lakes there’s something for everyone. What a wonderful day and of course the estate owners along with their many pets greet you with a welcome smile – they are happy to have a chat with you or leave you to your own devices (and that goes for the animals too). Do yourself a favour and visit this amazing estate you won’t regret it!


“A Peninsula must see!”

Panorama is an appropriate name for it – the views are incredible! And with so many amazing vantage points taking advantage of them, it is impossible to pick a favourite. The gardens and landscaping have to be seen to be believed, parts of them reminded my mate of Versailles! Make sure you allow plenty of time to walk around and take it all in. I’ll definitely be returning to see it all again.


“A slice of heaven on the Peninsula”

It’s places such as these that remind me how lucky we are to live in Victoria. We were encouraged to visit Panorama Estate by friends who had also visited and fell in love with this tranquil setting.

Magnificent gardens showcasing a vast array of Flora as well and the most beautiful and gentle animals.

Our host, Annemaree was the icing on the cake. Knowledgable about every part of the property and with the kindest disposition.

When we left we all noticed a feeling of calm amongst us which would directly reflect the energy of the place.

Highly recommended


“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???
