We drove to the top where the cable car is and walked down. The view from the top is beautiful as Im sure the cable car ride would be as well. The gardens are immaculately kept.

I travelled up the hill via the cable car to the top if the gardens, and enjoyed the leisurely walk down towards the city. Lots of beautiful trees and flowers to see and took lots of pictures, enjoyed brunch at the foot of the gardens.
