So much more than we expected. Staff very friendly and the cactus collection was amazing! Easy drive from Melbourne and worth the drive also!
We visited this anticipating a very educational and aesthetic visit but the grounds were very messy, pathways were muddy (we had a pram) and in some areas we couldn't enter because of deep pools of wa... read more »
There was an amazing variety of cacti and amazing photo opportunities. However the whole place had an untidy feel with empty plant pots and unkempt areas. The murals were lovely but a lot of them had ... read more »
"Half way to Mexico" as cactus guy said. Cactus Country is awesome place for cactus lovers and Mexican food lovers. You need to travel little bit through a rough road for awhile before you reach the place. The place is huge and you will be amaze how much variety of cactus (group according to the Country of origin). Informative as well, since they provide you with information book with the map. A great photo shoot for those who are into western, cowboy and desert theme. At the moment I visit, the place has restoration in progress. They inform us that a bad storm passed by and cause few damages from the cactus. But still they have some areas that are okay to check out. If you ever see a dog lazily lying give him pat. He probably their mascot hahaha. Try their cactus ice cream.. delicious!!
I still haven't stopped telling people about this place since I visited a month or so ago. The place is unbelievable. It was also great to see you at South Melbourne Markets today, with a range of cacti for sale.
The place was a huge dump full of actual rubbish. $12.50 per person to rubbish!!! The cactus looked either tired or were dead and falling over or broken. To top that off there were very little plants to buy (which were clearly bought from another place because the tags were still in them!!). We were wanting to buy quite a few varieties but all they had was generic succulants and cactus. None of the actual different ones from standard shops. Very few plants to buy. Actual rubbish lying about everywhere (empty dog cans and food rubbish just left on the ground in clear view for customers). Broken statues and planter boxes should have been removed rather than painting a damn wall! The cherry on top was how filthy the area was where they made the coffees! Large blow flies everywhere and the disgusting look of the area would fail health code. Drove a long way to be very very disappointed. NEVER AGAIN!
Extremely friendly and helpful staff, and a huge range of cacti to see in the garden and also to purchase. Will definitely be going back to visit again.
It's amazing! Great friendly staff, huge range of cactus and succulents to see and buy, definitely worth a look. They have wifi, serve Mexican food home made on premises as well as home made cactus cake!
