The spice gardens was a definite highlight of our trip and made a nice contrast to the stunning 'Bounty quality' beaches. We drove up to the gardens and explored the very attractive grounds for around 2 hours, taking in the vast variety of spices, exotic plants and darting bird life. A very restful and peaceful place to wander with soft... More

Lovely gardens with lots of bizarre plants and trees. Spent about an hour visiting the gardens and the ate lunch at the restaurant on site. Good food and fair prices, but the best part was the view! The restaurant finish working at 15:00 so plan your visit accordingly.

We enjoyed our trip to these gardens. We spent about an hour walking around the trails and matching all the numbered exhibits to the free guide. It was lovely to see all the exotic fruits and spices. My personal favourites were the pineapples and the avocado tree. There were some giant tortoises in pens and these attracted any visiting children.... More

A wonderful little retreat in the middle of nowhere that gave you a workout and a bit of an appetite that you wanted to come back and have the home-made lunch. Not to be missed. Also possibly the best ice-cream ever - had mint, cinnamon and lemongrass (separate scoops) and the flavours were amazing. Go walk, find some spices that... More

We loved this garden. It is probably of more interest to plantaholics and had hundreds of different spices and exotic fruit trees, together with a rainforest walk and longer treks (for the young/insane). There were also giant tortoises, and some other animals in cages (bit like a nature centre type approach). The food at the restaurant was excellent and you... More

The gardens are a few kilometres up the hill off the main road. They are quite pretty but extremely badly marked so it is hard to follow where you are going or what any of the plants are. The best part were the crops such as pineapple & bananas. It is more expensive than the Botanical gardens in Victoria. We... More

Nice spot to view spices as they grow in nature. Nutmeg, vanilla, peppercorns, cinnamon, and many other fruits. Botanicals and some wildlife. Nice souvenir shop and a restaurant.

Not easy to find up in the hills, a steep road is leading to the entrance building. A very unfriendly lady at the restaurant is selling the tickets for the spice garden. The garden itself is nice, interesting plants and spices. But: they keep several animals in extremely small cages – different birds, but also turtles, a young one in... More

Self guided tour of quiet spice garden in lovely valley with views of the sea and nice cafe. Great to see many of the spices used at home and how they grow and which part of the plant is used.
