  • visited this place in 2013 but shrouded in thick fog but today the sun was out and the views and gardens were spectacular. Food in the cafe was imaginative and tasty with something for everyone. Organ...  more »

  • Never fails to take one's breath away. The gardens are stunning. I've been visiting since I was a child and now I have brought my own bub (I'm pretty sure you'll find the softest grass in the world here, and little ones will love crawling and rolling in it). Whether you're a tourist or local it's definitely a must see. For tourists coming from Sydney, it's definitely worth the drive. Skip the motorway and take one of the more picturesque routes found in Google Maps. Make a day of it, relax and see a side of Australia that you won't get anywhere else. For parents you will find change tables are available in the disabled/parent bathrooms (there are two located in the main foyer). There is ramp access to most areas of the garden but for ease of exploring I'd recommend an ergo baby or sling. The restaurant and kiosk were both happy to warm bottles and I found the new restaurant to be extremely accommodating of our little one. In fact, I cannot speak highly enough of the service at the restaurant. Book a table outside; the view is spectacular.
  • We're on a motorbike tour for 2 weeks and arrived at the gardens then realized it was closing for the day. We've been riding for 7 hours, one of the wonderful staff saw how tired we were and let us use the bathroom and have a snack. She then said it's a shame we came all this way without seeing anything, she then closed the gates and took us to look at the incredible views. Although I'm sure she wanted to go home, she went above and beyond to ensure we got to see the beauty of the gardens. We are extremely grateful for her hospitality and her passion to show off this incredible place. It only takes a few minutes and some kind words to make a difference. šŸ‘. Thank you Kawasaki sister.
  • Beautiful views and a well maintained garden! Have been here many times and spent the day wandering around.The cafĆ© food is super expensive but the coffee is good. Better pack some lunch in your Picnic baskets if you are planning to spend the day..!
  • Very niceĀ garden width great views and beautiful bush walks. Large variety of plants and trees. We really enjoyed picnic there and will come back again.
  • A great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Huge gardens with lots of spots to sit and have a picnic, do some study or just do nothing. Easy to get to, free entry, lots of parking (with dedicated motorcycle parking!), and a few cafes to grab lunch and coffee.
