New landscaping works are set to begin at the Ballarat Botanical Gardens Fernery, to be completed in time for the 2024 Begonia Festival.

The gardens have showcased a fernery since the 1880’s, being one of the few gardens in the country to do so.

The work will create a new entrance to the gardens via Wendouree Parade – with the introduction of a forecourt designed around the Claxton Monument.

Landscaping will take place at the rear of the structure, connecting the fernery with the rest of the gardens.
