  • After talking about visiting here for so long we finally made it. The grounds are expansive but the highlights would be the orchid houses and the succulent garden. I could only imagine how much work i...  more »
  • A group coach tour stopped off for a garden view and morning tea. There is much to see and the tropical orchid house was in bloom. A relax in the cafe for coffee & cake after the walk.  more »
  • Following a wander round the well laid out gardens I ordered a pot of tea and piece of apple pie at the cafe and sat at an outside table while I waited for my family. After 20 minutes I still hadn't r...  more »

  • Visited on a rainy day so this curtailed activities. Attended free demonstration on propagation and caring for orchids. Volunteer staff extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Gardens a delight, will be returning to explore in full next time. Highly recommend for all ages, families, groups or some quite solitude on your own.
  • Very disappointing and misleading pictures on their website. Everything outside was closed off or locked up. The cafe offers fresh pizzas and all they have is a microwave! Even though they were not busy they were very slow to prepare food and drinks. I would not recommend.
  • The gardens are elegant and modest. Avoid the cafe, for a simple order of two sandwiches it took over 40 minutes. We canceled our one drink (hot chocolate) because it didn’t even arrive after 50 minutes....
  • The Botanic Gardens is a wonderful place to visit. The themed gardens, waterfall and wedding chapel are my favourite places. There is a vast array of different plants to see including a spectacular orchid house. And they are helping the environment, gold star from me!
  • Wonderful gardens and friendly, helpful staff. I will stop here for a stroll every time I travel between Sydney and Coffs. I look forward to seeing the new developments too
