Wilson Botanic Park

This was once a quarry up until the late 1970’s and was converted to a botanical garden from the 1980’s.

The quarry was founded by William Wilson in 1859. Mr Wilson recognised a business opportunity and began excavating the site which would soon become renowned for producing some of the highest quality basalt in the Melbourne region.
