Nice trails through the bush, the trail we went on was paved so perfect for the pram/stroller. I would say it’s more of a bush walk then a flower garden. We saw a wallaby which was lovely. Playground is a bit old but a nice...More

The wildflower gardens are a hidden treasure in St Ives. This is a lovel place to take a stroll around especially at different times of the year and when flowers are in full bloom. Also a great spot for a quiet picnic.

The wild flower garden has a small visitors centre and has a couple of relaxing bush walks around the 'reserve'. BBQ facilities and wallabies around you make for a good day out with the family.

a great place for bushwalks with young kids. They host many events, fesitvals etc. I wish it had a nice cafe onsite which specialises in native plant- based cuisine, that would be awesome.

You will need a car to get there, but it is easy it find this welcome surprise while in north Sydney. Be sure to do the short walk on wooden decks around the pond. Interesting information boards detail the life of the pond and encourage...More
