Welcome

Van Loons Nursery is a multi award winning, destination garden centre situated on the busy and picturesque Bellarine Peninsula.

Many of our staff are trained horticulturalists and plant enthusiasts who are passionate about helping you create a beautiful garden.

Be inspired by the wonderful selection of flowering outdoor plants, lush indoor plants, pots and outdoor decorator pieces. Our vegetable and flower seedlings are the best quality available.

The very popular café and stylish gift and homewares centre are enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.

Our big news is that we now have AfterPay! You can use it to purchase anything in the nursery but not in the café.

Check out the new “Workshops” page for a diary of great events coming up in Spring.

Café

Van Loons Café is right in the heart of the garden centre with lovely views out to the colourful plant displays. It is the perfect spot for a delicious breakfast, lunch, morning or afternoon tea either inside, or outdoors in the lovely alfresco dining areas

Meals are cooked fresh daily, using delicious herbs or vegetables from our kitchen gardens as well as lots of locally sourced produce. Local wines, beers and ciders are also showcased.

We have a great selection of cakes, slices and biscuits with lots of gluten free options always available. The house made scones with jam and cream are always popular choice.

Our High Tea’s are delicious! Perfect as a celebration, or just a catch up with friends. You can book one just about any day of the year for two or more people. Van Loons Café is a great spot for a special occasion, family gathering or a group event.

Call us for a booking.
