  • Its a cool botanical/ tropical garden with looots of turtles in the pond which are amazing! The park is beautiful, i would suggest to allow 30 min - its not really big.  more »
  • We visited the Botanical Garden on an ordinary morning during the week and met only a few other visitors. We particularly liked the pond landscape with water fountains and animals such as turtles and ducks. Some sections of the garden were unfortunately a bit neglected and unkempt. There are many walks with seating for a break, so ideal to recover from the rigors of long car journeys. For a picnic, one of the numerous green areas is offered.

  • Such a peaceful happy place - the residents are interactive & the staff wonderful! So much to see & relaxing in many ways- from the contemplation garden, the Chinese garden, orchid house with refreshments for a gold coin entry, or just picnic/BBQ while the kids play - great for couples, family & singles x
  • Great place for a stroll. There were a few mosquitoes hanging around on the day we went. Picnic tables were available for lunch too
  • Lovely gardens featuring a bit of a bush walk area, nice pond with many very friendly turtles, native flora, Chinese garden, and orchid house. The orchid house is a must visit spot with friendly staff/volunteers and a beautiful display of orchids from around the world. Come during one of the talks to learn about orchids, and have tea. Near the native plants section, close to the pond, don't miss the Australian Stingless Bees in their little wooden hive. Very interesting to see them coming and going!
  • Really nice, well kept gardens. Great spot for a picnic.
  • Beautiful place with a recently renovated Japanese section. We had our wedding photos taken here recently and couldn't be happier with the results. Would recommend. No dogs allowed though.
