Pick your own route but make sure you get to the Japanese gardens and bridges. We took the outer path alongside the river first, but there are lots of choices. Everything is neatly but discreetly labelled, very useful if you are a gardener. Lots of...More

we were so surprised to find these gorgeous extensive gardens in Coffs. We actually walked there from the Coffs Creek Trail which was fabulous. Good parking, free entry. There is a very reasonably priced cafe there to enjoy morning tea or lunch and some friendly...More

Chinese garden was the best. The other areas were nice but could do with more work. The cafe was nice to have coffee at.

What was once a rubbish dump has been transformed into a wonderful oasis. There are many different areas and it is easy to just stroll along the paths. The best part is that entry is free.

These gardens are deceptively large considering they're in the middle of Coffs harbour. Plenty of parking and free entry with a cafe onsite. There are water fountains and toilet blocks along with seating throughout the gardens. Multiple different areas from grassy picnic spots, rainforest, riverbank/mangrove,...More

Extensive gardens with plants from around the world. There is a board walk through the mangoes. The Japanese garden at the far end of the park is excellent. Great place for a picnic, though there is a coffee shop as well. Entry to the gardens...More
