Branklyn is a tiny garden but extremely well laid out to give the visitor an enchanting experience. Follow the paths to really appreciate the range and diversity of plants, trees and shrubs complemented by rock gardens, a pond and a small waterfall. Sit awhile on the benches strategically placed around to enjoy the ever-changing vista, especially looking up - you... More

Highly recommend. Don't let the fact that this is a small garden put you off. It is magnificent. Quite amazing how clever design can create an image of something larger. Plenty of spaces to sit and enjoy; maybe do a few sketches too! The garden is well-maintained. Please find time to visit. You won't be disappointed.

I have visited many different gardens, this is really awesome. So many different species of plants, beautiful trees, full of flowers. Very well kept, it's amazing to smell the scent of the flowers walking through the gardens. It's close to the city centre, just across the bridge. It takes around 15 minutes walking from the city centre but it's really... More

Well worth a visit, I have visited a variety of National Trust gardens and this one had a large number of plant species I had never come across.

A visit to this garden was our main reason for a visit to Perth. Eleanor was the volunteer on duty that day and cheerfully and enthusiastically explained the set out and history. The original owners turned their tennis court into a part of the garden which now covers two acres. The old trees provide wonderful shelter, shade and leaf mulch,... More

Beautiful, compact garden but space used to best advantage. Lots of plants beautifully displayed and even room for a pond and little waterfalls. The rock garden is fantastic and there are convenient benches dotted around from which to admire the different garden areas. Some nice plants for sale as well. At certain times of the day I imagine the noise... More

Take a sharp left as you come towards Perth from the north. Wind through quiet residential lane to the carpark then walk down hill along a herby lane and you'll find the entrance to this National Trust treasure. Two plant lovers built themselves a delightful garden,nestling on the hillside, digging out the local soil to create the perfect habitats for... More

We took a visitor from Australia with us and he thought that the garden was fantastic. Full of surprises and different plants. Although small in area there is a maze of different paths so that you can spend a long time exploring. Great place for a half day.
