  • This place is great during off peak. When there are events, it's hard to find parking, so public transport is the way to go. Last time I parked near a continence store, and the owner came out to tell me to move my car because he thinks the space is designated for his customers. The garden is well maintained, just a few dollars for entry fee, great place to go for a stroll (when not busy)
  • Its a small Japanese garden with pond, traditional tea house, groomed gardens etc. There's also a small native animal zoo, native plant walk, small rose garden & more. There's a small entry fee. Arrived by bicycle (good cycle path nearby) for the crazy chaos of the Cherry Blossom festival. Seemed to have planted a few more since I was last there. Finally doing a bit of upgrading.There's a free aviary across the road.
  • Came in late Autumn. Nice roses, other plant life was average although the place was well maintained. They offered some cool services on the day we went (not sure if it's every Sunday) like face painting and arts and craft for kids, horse & cart tours and had love classical music all for free. There was also an ice cream truck, salvation army sausage sizzle/BBQ and other stalls they had there. Entry was $5 for non-local residents (free entry for residents). There was also some native wildlife (wallabies, kangaroos, emus) there with small tours running. However, the whole area was quite small and you could be finished in 2 hours max.
  • Lovely gardens. Not as expansive as some botanical gardens in Sydney, but many great exhibitions and events. If you're heading to the events, it's a good idea to park a little further away and walk to the gardens. Parking can be difficult to get. These events can get very busy. Be prepared for lines and long waiting times.
  • We went here for the Cherry Blossom Festival. The day was nice and there were trees blooming. It was really busy the entire time we were here for the festival making the path through the cherry trees slow. I was surprised at how large the gardens were and think it would be an interesting visit outside of the festival as well (just not out in Auburn that much).
