  • Fantastic views clear out all the way to the mount. Wonderful variety of plants, the succulent and cactus garden in particular is very diverse and I saw many unfamiliar plants. Butterfly garden is also lovely to visit. Some steeper inclines and gravel paths so may not be wheelchair accessible in all parts without a fit person assisting, but even if you don't go up the lion steps to the top it's still great views from almost anywhere in the quarry. Amazing that it's all maintained by volunteers!
  • This place is amazing! I would encourage anyone who can to visit and donate to this amazing project. It is running entirely by volunteers and donations yet looks better than everywhere else we've visited this trip.
  • Beautiful views of western bay of plenty, however very large - and not enough water fountains to quench your thirst in the blistering sun, so take enough of your own
  • Beautiful place to visit with the family. There was a wedding happening at the time. The bromeliad garden is so well planted and managed. Lilies in the pond are a great new addition.
  • Brought my friend there and was utterly disappointed with what we seen. The pond was full of dirt, clogged up and seems like it hasn’t been cleaned for ages. The place really needs a good clean up so it is more appealing to visitors.
