What a beautiful setting and what beautiful gardens. The restaurant is kid friendly. You can enjoy a glass of wine with your lunch. Staff very pleasant and child friendly. Well worth a try.

We needed somewhere to relax and enjoy a picnic before catching our return flight home. What a beautiful surprise when we entered the gardens. It oozes history, is exceptionally maintained and a truly delightful place to enjoy the company of friends and family while you stroll and sit amongst the gardens. If only we had more time.

Sadly Pete's patch is no more. Instead we have a selection of the all contemporary vegie garden. Well, nearly everything these days is contemporary. Loved the sections of different garden rooms especially the Japanese garden. Will go there again.

Went here to see Pete's vege patch from the tv programme. Pleasantly surprised by the whole gardens. Not a lot of colour in winter. The heated wall was interesting. Slopping grounds. Had coffee in cafe. Lovely view over the river. Walked from downtown through queens park. About 20-25 minutes. Nice walk. Caught the red hop on hop off bus back... More

Great gardens, reasonably parking. Good paths to walk on, however it is steep Very well maintained. Thought the vege garden was well done. Something different was the artic display/room

Loved the Japanese Garden and the old conservatory. ABC Gardening program vegie patch very interesting (especially to my wife , who's fascinated by compost!), and the small Macquarie Island building is an innovative and unusual display, worth looking at. Also liked the wooden French fountain/sculpture. (Found a similar one in metal by same artist in Salamanca Square). Don't walk there... More
