This is interesting enough but not the usual flowering gardens you find at most gardens. It could have been the time of the year. There's a lovely cafe for coffee and cake and some unusual exhibits like the steel crocodile and dragon.

We visited early Saturday morning. There were few people about. The gardens were spectacularly beautiful. They are so well kept. Not a weed was to be seen. Many plants were displaying wonderful colour. Water features abounded. My dogs loved running on the luxuriant grass. These gardens are too good to miss.

Massive "makeover" - just "WOW", I visit every week! The upgrade, extensions of facilities and overall improvements are so remarkable. Well done!!! I visit every week for a walk, I like to read or study in the gardens, visit the café... it's so green and peaceful. The birds love their beautiful home. It's well maintained and cared for with love and passion. I'm yet to visit the new visitor centre but notice all the signs and maps everywhere, well done. The new toilet block is also a bonus, very clean. My favourite part is still the rainforest. I will follow up with more photos. 11 out of 10!

Friends suggested we go for a walk through the Botanical Gardens as I had not visited there for some time. I was very impressed with the new croc sculpture, many hours I should imagine had been spent making it. The relocated baobabs in their new garden looked impressive. It was peaceful wandering through the well-kept pathways. I would like to see more trees named as there were only a few trees with names. Also maybe add the age of the trees if known. The staff do an excellent job in maintaining the grounds. Walked into the visitors centre which was new to me. Has a very impressive display on the history of the gardens. The lady at the shop was very friendly and inviting. Lastly had a coffee from Eva’s café and sat on rocks near a bridge. A very enjoyable morning.

A nice way to spend a few hours relaxing and walking around the gardens. Easy to find parking and then can choose a short or long walk just wandering around between the different areas. Very well kept and set up. Can find quiet spots just to relax and chill.
