This place is so big you never feel crowded in. After week of tourist activities that were crowded it was nice to have no much space in natural environment. Restaurant is lovely

The stunning displays of God’s creation abound in these well maintained tropical gardens. We saw butterflies and all manner of amazing flowers and foliage. This is well worth a visit.

If we could give 6 “stars” or 20 we would. The collection of plants are amazing. Took many many photos. And they did not do the plants justice. Go. Spend a couple of hours wandering. Such a peaceful spot. And free.

Not huge in size but spades of atmosphere. Take your own picnic, pick a spot a soak it up! Read the story boards and enjoy...We enjoyed it without a host and without kiosk/visitor centre...easily done.
