“One of the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

What a delightful place.... Lovely walks; beautiful views; interesting flora and excellent, small cablecar museum. Need to go on a sunny day.... A must see.
Mostly wheelchair accessible but there are some very steep gradients.

“Nice walk and views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Really liked the walk and the views, take your time, relax, take photos, visit the duck pond and walk down to the city. Make sure you walk down from the cable car, would hate to walk up.

“Gardens with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Set on a hillside, these are gardens which afford a great view from the top as well as providing a wide variety of plants to enjoy. The "tourist route" is to go up in the cable car and come down the main path in the middle of the garden. That's very nice but detouring into some of the side paths will allow the visitor to see so much more and to get away from the crowds.
