  • A gorgeous garden where every pathway beckons you to explore. The ancient looking trees and setting by the ocean create an other-wordly atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.  more »

  • More managed sub tropical woodland than ‘garden’. Some beautiful specimen plants and trees. Lots of rhododendron and camellia, can only imagine how lovely it is in the spring time when they are in bloom. Very much enjoyed walking around the various paths and trails
  • Great place to visit, lots of unique trees from all over the world. Not real sunny, but still beautiful. Ate lunch too, very delicious. Staff very friendly.
  • Has lost its appeal over the last 15 years. Island is now shut off, only for private use. Water lily pond looks more like a swamp. Most of the fauna looks dead. Didn’t live up to our expectations.
  • Beautiful grounds! Our 2 year old loved finding all the dairy doors. Great walks for the whole family. Bring cash to get in and got a nice cuppa and cake!
  • Such a beautiful place to walk. Stunning views.
