The tropical climate slows for plants from all across the globe to flourish. It's beautiful and easy to get to. Plenary of shade for the hot wet season days. Must visit

I loved these gardens and in particular the boarded rainforest walk, just so tranquil.It is well worth doing and it was a great way to have a relaxing morning, even though there were quite a few people there.
