    Our Peace Park is one of the most unique spaces in the world. It aims to promote harmony for all beings through many different interfaith installations, set amongst flourishing gardens in the Whipstick Forest of Bendigo. One of our friendly and knowledgeable gardeners will guide you through the Peace Park, exploring the native and introduced plants and trees, including the sacred Bodhi trees. Spring is the perfect time to visit our lush and blooming gardens. Winding paths and dry-stone walls complement the beautiful landscape. Take home a free plant at the end of your tour!
