  • A great botanic garden but we found the lack of signage and maps a bit frustrating. When in season the tropical fruit garden is amazing. Unfortunately the fernery is closed since a long time undergoing repairs.
  • Although a highly rated regional botanic garden we found the lack of good signage and maps a bit of a frustration. When in season the tropical fruit garden would be interesting. Unfortunately the fernery was closed undergoing repairs.
