A must visit for Victoria. Gardens are spectacular. Hard to believe that it was a rock quarry 150 years ago it has so much natural beauty. Go early before the bus tours show up so that it feels you have the place to yourself. Cafeteria was merely OK, had the pre made ham sandwich though the servers were nice. Gift shop was cheesy, big time. Takes about 3 hours to do the full walk but it's really worth it.
