  • The garden was in full bloom on 26th Sept. More so, the parks Victoria website gives the correct info. We enjoyed the clean breeze, bare sunlight and the natural colors, to our hearts' fullest.
  • Fantastic gardens, takes a long time to walk the entire loop and there are so many varieties of plants to admire. Free entry and ample car parking makes for a must stop if you are in the area.
  • Amazing gardens, just amazing. So much colour and variety. Bit of a shame then that the café is so average. Poor decor, and takeaway coffee cups when dining in? Yikes.
  • Great place for kids and families. Flowers and lake are awesome. You can take a great shot.
  • Watch the gardens explode in colour as thousands of flowers bloom each spring. Autumn, meanwhile, sees deciduous trees painted every shade of gold and crimson
