  • We love these gardens any time of the year and visit them from Auckland. Today we were pleasantly surprised with the decorated rocks hidden around the gardens for kids to hunt - very cool idea. First time ever we visited the new caffee and like it very much - good food, friendly service and pretty decor. Wonderful experience for the whole family.
  • It was great place for kids to run off that wet weather energy... they loved the tunnels and the waterfalls ..
  • Nice place beautiful garden created in a quarry. Good for bush walk. Hiking and relaxing.

  • Wonderful place, Would well recommend for the food-friendly staff, and scenery :)
