  • A walk up thdhill. You walk up an amazingly account of horticulture in the mountains. Perfect for all seasons. Very educational and worth the climb up. Very much worth it. A rare gem  more »
  • Very pleasant walk through these beautiful gardens. The climb is steeper than you expect! Good views and entry is free.  more »
  • Easily missed as its a small entrance in the middle of the village behind the bakery. You climb and climb through an amazing number of plants into a surprisingly big area. Nice views across the valley...  more »
  • A hidden gem. Great little trek through the gardens and a treat at the top overlooking the town.
  • Beautiful sometimes shady and sunny garden. The main road is tarred; practice with the stroller. There are also other paths between the cascades and plants for budding adventurers. Cool water waiting for the brave at the top with a breathtaking view of the Valley.
