  • This is a wonderful place to come, on your own, with a friend or with a young family. Lots of interest inside and out with permanent and short exhibitions, lovely gardens to stroll in, a natural playground for children to test their climbing and clambering skills plus a cafe and loos, and easy parking. The amazing thing is it's all free! There is a donation box as donations help it to continue to run and a shop with a range of gifts, some inexpensive items for kids to spend their pocket money on. Friendly staff too, who will offer guidance what to see and do.
  • Nice way to spend 2-3 hours with the kids. Cafe is brilliant, tasty and good value. A good selection of plants and gardens for adults to enjoy, and a playground and exhibits for the kids. Its all free including the parking. I bought some plants from their nursery to contribute to their upkeep.
  • Me & my husband came with our 5 children and I must say it is a beautiful place with some wonderful history and plenty of exciting things for children to do. I personally loved that the kiddies had to pull out the draws to find more pieces of history. There is clearly a lot of hard work put into the grounds and it really shows. I think there should be a small charge to enter to keep it running at such a high standard. Fabulous place for all ages.
  • Great park, good play area for children, nice museum (Mosman collection of old vehicles). Lovely gardens to explore, nice (but slightly pricey) cafe. Good facilities and very friendly staff. Great cheap day out with the family if you bring a picnic.
  • The discovery centre is very beautiful. Perfect for a relaxed afternoon. The staff are friendly and it is wonderful to see a snippet of the local history. Definitely recommend a visit, cannot believe it's free!
