We enjoyed walking through the various tropical vegetation areas including the wide variety of boab trees. Make sure to first visit the orientation building for an overview of the gardens

Relaxing evening with children exploring where the tracks were leading to and where they ended up, with a surprise waterfall! In the end we all made it to the carpark, however. Worth a visit to tune out from the city buzz.

A nice place to walk around earlier in the day, as it can be hot and steamy. The map is a bit confusing and the sensory garden wasn’t sign posted. Not the most spectacular place but had a great playground for kids.

It has various sections; from the bush land vegetation to rainforest and many more. The plants there are well maintained and it is not crowded. Good place to spend time with nature.

We enjoyed wandering through gardens which are divided into different categories. It was hit by Cyclone Marcus in March and there is still much cleaning up to be done. Lovely green lawns, timber walkways and casual restaurant. Worth a visit
