Sale Botanic Gardens

The 150 year old Sale Botanic Gardens sits next to the Lake Guthridge precinct and contains beautiful gardens, grassed areas, paved walking areas, a playground (including flying fox), undercover picnic areas, sculptures, a fauna enclosure, sensory garden, elm forest and the Lakeside Entertainment and Arts Facility. The Sale Botanic Gardens are located as part of the Lake Guthridge Parklands precinct, surrounding Lake Guthridge in the centre of Sale.

The Sale Botanic Gardens originated in 1860 when approx 20 hectares of land was set aside as a botanic garden. Twenty four years later, additional swampy land, now Lake Guthridge, was included in the site. Over the ensuing years, the site has endured many incursions and changes, including use as a golf course and appropriation of various sections for sporting activities and the construction of a fauna park.

Today, the botanic gardens measure approx 5.1 hectares, with the adjoining Lake Guthridge and Lake Guyatt occupying an additional 27 hectares. The Gardens owe their botanic heritage to Baron Ferdinand Von Mueller, the first state botanist, and Mr William Guilfoyle, the then director of the Royal Melbourne Botanic Gardens.

A major feature of the Botanic Gardens is the many remaining trees planted in the late 1800's by Von Mueller as well as remnant indigenous redgums some dating back 300 years. Near the gardens there are over 4km of trails to enjoy incorporating an indigenous art trail.

As well as an abundance of bird life visiting the parklands nearby, there is a comtemporary fauna enclosure containing Red-Necked Wallabies, Pademelons and Parma Wallabies set into a landscaped natural environment with excellent viewing opportunities. There is also a delightful "sensory garden" located within the botanic gardens for all to enjoy.

The Botanic Gardens are located in Guthridge Parade Sale, with ample free parking on site

Sale Powder Magazine

Colonial Governments in Victoria built Powder Magazines to provide safe conditions for the storage of explosive powder which was used by the gold mining industry.

Built in 1864-65, the Sale Powder Magazine served the needs of North and East Gippsland. The Sale Powder Magazine has massive walls and buttresses and barrel vaulting in the ceiling. To reduce the chance of an accidental explosion, timber dowels were used to fix the flooring.

Barrack like in appearance, the building is almost encircled by the watercourse of Flooding Creek, historically giving it a buffer from bushfires. The Magazine became private property around 1925 and in 1995 it was rediscovered through a heritage study conducted by the former City of Sale having been used as a private residence for many years.

The property is now owned by the Wellington Shire Council, who utilised the services of a heritage architect to produce a schedule of work for its restoration. It is managed by a Committee of Management responsible to the Sale Historical Society.
