This park is home to plant species from around the world and includes large seasonal displays of camellias, magnolias, gardenias, azaleas, and rhododendrons. A huge rose garden is also situated inside the park, along with a large collection of perennials, bromeliads, clivias, and hydrangeas.

  • The botanical guardens here is amazing. Very well maintained and alot of love and effort gone in considering its all been maintained by volunteers. I only had an hour or two to walk around, definitely need a full day to absorb the full potential of it.
  • Very touristy but worth a visit. Great sky walk and botanical garden. Fudge rules on the mountain!!!
  • Beautiful spot to go exploring! People put much work into maintaining this amazing garden! Loved it
  • Lovely presented gardens. Even though it's not very large, the diversity and range of plants is exceptional. Especially loved the combination of Aussie Bush meets Tropical Rainforest. Well worth the visit.
  • Great facilities. Love the grounds. Nice afternoon with the family.
