 History of the Botanical Gardens
 Gardens of change
 Features of the Gardens
The Benalla Botanical Gardens, on the shores of Lake Benalla, were designed and developed in 1886-7 by Alfred Sangwell and are listed on the Register of the National Estate.

The Rose Garden, first established in 1959, is an icon in Benalla. Rose fanciers will find a notable collection of modern varieties, including Australian roses, seldom found in public gardens. The newly-launched Benalla Crossing Place Project sees a new design for this garden with works already underway.

Extensive lawns sweep down to Lake Benalla, creating an open parkland beneath the trees, which were part of the original planting.

A double row of elm and place trees surround what is commonly described as the most picturesque cricket oval in the country.

Wide curving pathways meander through beds of shrubs and perennial plantings.
