Explore the park’s many riverside walks, exotic tropical areas, and calm woodlands by yourself or on a free guided tour. Visit the main greenhouse, designed to look like a palace, to learn about the garden’s extensive collection of New Zealand and Australian ferns, some of which have lived here for over a century. These protected trees now form an important part of the national tree fern collection. End your visit with a refreshing stop at the garden’s tearoom, featuring outdoor and indoor seating, and serving breakfast, lunch, and afternoon tea.
