Peaceful and scenic indeed. Well tended by the looks and so peaceful. The lake is serene and birdlife very entertaining.

These are lovely gardens that are perfect for lounging, walking the dog or general meandering. They really come alive during Malmsbury markets and the annual Fayre. They are located near the local swimming spot, town hall, a playground and Moto Bean coffee roasters so definitely...More
