Tue, 20th April 2021 Outing – Alfred Nicholas Memorial Garden
Autumn is the time when the deciduous trees provide us with the most beautiful colours.
Our next excursion will be to one of the best places to see and photograph this, the Alfred Nicholas Memorial Garden in Sherbrooke in the Dandenong Ranges (Melway 75 G1).
Its ornamental lake and arched bridges seem to echo Monet’s Giverny Garden outside Paris. The contrast between the majestic mountain ash trees and the autumn colours around them is a particularly photogenic feature of this Garden. Hopefully the weather gods will be in a cooperative mood on the day. The garden covers a slope with the ornamental lake at the bottom of the gully. You may wish to bring a hiking stick and a bottle of water for the walk back up to the park entrance.
Meeting place is the Ripe Cafe, diagonally opposite the T-junction of the Mountain Highway & Mt. Dandenong Tourist Road in Sassafras (Melway 66 F9).
The Ripe Café is in a cottage set back a little from the road.
If we wish, we can also return to the same place for lunch. After morning coffee, we will drive to the Alfred Nicholas Garden. There is an off-road car park opposite the entrance.

Since its opening, close to a million people have been buried in the cemetery and it is the last resting place for many famous Australians.
