  • 4 acres of groomed gardens and fauna. There is a red goodwill box at the entrance. $5 per person. Adored this place. We were the only ones here at the time. Tranquil and quiet. There were some bridges and different paths to take. Would be a lovely spot for an event or picnic(I don't know if you are allowed to do that here) I loved it for the photography. There was a cafe onsite but it was closed. Can't recommend this place enough, a must visit. I will be coming back on my next visit.
  • Absolutely beautiful gardens, well worth the entry fee. A beautiful collection that showcases the glorious flowers.
  • Owner is a real personality, food is fresh, home grown, made on site. Delicious food, refreshing drink. Surroundings are gorgeous, tropical garden, alfresco dining. Plan a return before we leave.
  • Beautiful tropical Garden, Cafe is closed for now on 17 July 2019. 5 Dollar entry fee (self regulated)
  • Really enjoyed the walk through here, loads of flora and fauna. Shame the cafe wasn't open :( worth the walk :)
