Beautiful layout with avenues of different palms. Wallabies also and turtles. I was very impressed. Small but easy to walk around. There was plenty of shade.

We walked through lush rain forests with huge trees and beautiful lush ground cover. There were sections where you could sit peacefully. The Blackhawk crash memorial was a fitting tribute in this tranquil setting. It was well worth the visit.
