  • So lovely! The staff are wonderful with extensive knowledge. I could have spoken to the lady in the bonsai garden for hours! Great views...
  • If you are a local or a tourist, go a take a look at the National Arboretum. A long term project just at the beginning. Don't forget to see the cork tree plantation. There is a good CafĂ© and also an excellent a la carte restaurant tucked away in the corner.
  • Absolutely amazing views. A place you must visit in Canberra. If you like nature and calm places, this is for you. There are amazing sight seeing spots in the middle of the woods.
  • Amazing place. Beautiful scenery. the building is incredible and lovely food. I predict this is a huge asset for Canberra that will become very popular once word gets out.
  • Another jewel in the Canberra tourism scene, liked by locals and visitors alike. Appeals to all ages. It will be great once the trees have matured (after I am dead, sadly!)
