  • We happened to be in town when the Lumia light display was in the gardens. -4 but well worth it! Some amazing tree specimens in the gardens too.
  • Hot and happening - there is always some show going on. Amazing scenic trail for hiking or cycling. Good to pass time with family, friends or even solo
  • Beautiful gardens located at the other end of Queenstown beach. It's proximity to the town center make it an easy place to get to. Came by for the luma festival and spent an hour or two just wandering around the gardens. It isn't enormous but there are multiple pathways that go through the gardens or go by the lake. A few nice sculptures around as well a a bridge and fountain. It was still quite nice to walk around in winter.
  • Great place to relax and away from city hustle. Prefect photo place with scenic beauty all around
  • Scenic, beautiful. Great labels to let you know what you're looking at. Good paths for easy walks.
