Situated within the stunning grounds of the Australian Inland Botanic Gardens is Mildura’s hidden gem, Botanica. Stroll in to discover a barn style fitout with exposed wood banisters, long communal tables and pendant lighting hanging from a tin roof, making for a rustic, relaxed space to enjoy a smooth cup of Vittoria coffee and breakfast every fourth Saturday of the month before perusing the gardens.  The perfect rustic venue that can cater for weddings and functions for up to 200 guests.
