I wasn't sure what to expect when I visited this morning. This garden is just spectacular. It is impeccably kept with flowing water into ponds, raked pebbles and manicured lawns. A 10 minute stroll from the tram stop on South Terrace, this is well worth the visit for a piece of serenity.

We really enjoy coming here, it's such a peaceful place, it's not very big but there's enough room for everyone. We took a picnic & sat on the law to eat it. The garden is well maintained, the pond has lots of fish & turtles in it. Definitely worth a trip.

A lovely way to spend a few hours is to browse the central market, pick up some picnic supplies, and walk a few metres to the tram stop and go to the south terrace stop. It is free to that stop so dont use your metro card. Then you can sit in the parklands and enjoy your picnic and then... More

The Himeji gardens are quite beautiful. Everything is extremely well maintained. However I was disappointed that I couldn't see any fish or anything in the pond. I was also expecting it to be a lot bigger. Easily took us 10 minutes to walk around including taking lots of photos. I would only go here again unless I was in the... More

From the time you step through the gates from south tce. you wouldn't think you were in a city. It is tranquil and there are places to sit and reflect in the ponds.

This is a beautiful, tranquil garden to escape the bustle of the city. As soon as we stepped into this little Japanese-style garden, I felt at peace. With neat green lawns, a few trees to provide shade, 'oriental' shrubs and water features dotted around, its a lovely and different place to visit. It also has a raked Zen garden (with... More
