Water vistas, grand old trees and lovingly maintained & colourful garden beds make this a lovely reprieve from everyday life or the hustle and bustle of sightseeing. Friendly and knowledgeable staff are an added bonus to this joyful haven! 10/10

I enjoyed leisurely strolling past the flowers, trees and plants of local origin. The gift shop was complete with books, jewelry and local wood products.

Obviously not on the same scale as say Melbourne's botanic gardens, but absolutely beautiful and well maintained. A great spot to visit or picnic.

Loved our visit to the Gardens. The highlight was the water lily pond. My wife has mobility issues and park has a clearly marked walk for people with mobility issues to make it easy for them to know which way to go.

We spent 2 hours roaming as a family. It was free and we saw some wonderful grand trees and enjoyed out time here.

I love nature and flowers but thus garden was nothing special. I walked there from town centre. Very easy to get lost so I suggest getting a bus or driving.
