  • If you're in the area then pay a visit, a little quiet oasis away from the noise and traffic of North Sydney. Not something you'd travel especially to visit in my view though.  more »
  • This place is absolutely stunning. I have seen weddings and events in this garden and it looks spectacular. I have taken visiting family and friends from Scotland to see this garden, as it is a very s...  more »

  • This is a great location to have a picnic, sit and read, or meet with a few friends. Wendy and her gardeners have taken amazing care of this place and it shows. There are views of the city, respite from the heat during summer, and the location is easy walking distance to/from Luna Park. There are lots of stairs so it is not easily accessible if you have a wheelchair or require assistance to walk. On a weekend, this is a popular spot for wedding photography to occur. There are no food options in the immediate vicinity so bring your own if you plan to eat.
  • Wendy's Secret Garden is a great place for a picnic and a short walk. Many of the plants have already grown well, so it is not as open as in many photos. Nevertheless, it is an experience you should not miss. One is in a completely different piece of jungle than in the rest of Sydney. There are many places to sit down for a picnic and there is something to see at every corner, like small sculptures for example. It is very quiet despite the proximity to the city centre and you can also read a book very well. A must see in Sydney.
  • Thank you Wendy for putting so much love and care into the creation and maintenance of this garden. There are many mature trees and plants here that are a pleasure to see. There are plenty of places to sit and have a picnic or just enjoy a seat after a long walk. There are a variety of plants that are a pleasure to discover while you hear all of the different birds calling to each other.
  • Naturally inspired paths and stone walls through beautiful dense ferns and lush green plants. Some flowers sprinkled throughout. Plenty of seats and nooks to stop in and relax or enjoy a snack.
  • The most divine park in Sydney, so quiet and untouched. Have been 4 times and is always busy and people seem to be respectful of the surroundings. Beautiful
