  • I am a regular at the gardens. They are vast and stunning with shady forests of mature trees to desert cacti, and if you go early on a hot day, the parots go crazy in the fountains on the western...

  • Haven't visited there for many years. Went with daughter and young grandchildren, and had a wonderful day. Will return asap to spend more time. Coffee, cake and ice cream s were good too☺️ Thank you for a beautiful place.
  • Love going to the Botanic gardens, really nice place to go and walk to the various sections of the gardens at your own pace. There is also a plant shop and 2 cafes where you can sit and relax. A great place to take children as there are several large grass areas where they can play and still be supervised. We recently took both of our grand daughters and they thoroughly enjoyed exploring the rose garden and smelling the flowers as well as wondering around the walking paths. It inspired them to pick leaves and flowers from our garden and the local park so that they could use them in some artwork. They want to go again and explore another area of the titanic park.
  • Always a beautiful space. The Light Cycles inside the garden was 100% worth every cent and standing in the cold in queue for our entrance turn. The garden came to life in a completely new way. Staff were friendly, the patrons were all in wonder. Gorgeous space for events or a lively afternoon stroll.
  • Parking can be difficult because it is quite a popular place. That said it is a great place to visit even if you know nothing about plants. It's beautiful. There is a cafe in there too. Lovely place for weddings, for the kids to have a run around or for just a peaceful walk.
  • There are always different areas to explore each time I go with stunning plants and flowers. The Santos Museum is fascinating and there are often art projects to see there. There is also a cafe and kiosk which are both good. There are free tours at 10.30am that are worth doing, and the special tours the Botanic Gardens put on sometimes are very good also.
