The Gardens are joined to Lake Weeroona and Rosalind Park by the Bendigo Creek Linear Park walking and cycling track. They are open from 7.30 am until sunset. There are toilets, playground and barbeque area. Further information on the Gardens can be found in the booklet White Hills Botanic Gardens 1857-2007 by Judy Milner, obtainable from Friends of Bendigo Botanic Gardens, PO Box 117, Strathdale, Victoria 3550.
Of great significance is an exciting major plan to extend and rejuvenate the Gardens. The current Master Plan (November 2009) can be accessed here.
