  • Such a beautiful place to visit! The rain forest walk is amazing and has some very interesting things to see. The plant life is spectacular! This is a wonderful place for the whole family.
  • Lovely little rainforest walk they certainly have thought out their gardens and have added places of interest for the children especially in the rain forest. Great for that special picnic. The roses were just beautiful!
  • Beautiful place, got a parking space in school holidays no problem. Unfortunately on our visit a few of the attractions where closed, like the Japanese garden. But the rainforest walk was beautiful with hidden delights! Great place to share with family and friends, next time I’ll be taking a picnic blanket and a book as there are many places to lay back , relax and enjoy the best of what nature has to offer.
  • Beautifully kept gardens with plenty of interesting walks and features. Good amenities and all services by volunteers. A great place, well worth the visit.
  • Loved these walks in the mountains. Will definitely go back one day! The picturesque setting of the lake and the bridge make for great family photographs. The wildlife and greenery in the sub tropical surrounds make this a definite go to experience for you next trip to the gold coast or brisbane! I would suggest taking a picnic and making a day of it.
