Mum & I visited Allendale Gardens - Mum being a keen gardener. We thoroughly enjoyed wandering through all the different mainly well maintained gardens (must be a heck of a task to upkeep!) ... the grass was nicely mowed and we meandered over creeks, through...More

These gardens are definitely worth a visit. So much hard work has gone into these gardens by one couple. They are very welcoming and are proud to tell many stories of their gardens. The tea house is very quaint and the homemade scones with the...More

I'm a keen gardener, and I loved this place. A charming "senior" couple implementing their unique vision and creating an eclectic garden that shines with honesty and beauty. So many lovely roses, fuschias and hydrangeas. Well worth 2 hours (plus morning or afternoon tea). Modest...More

Having been to the gardens many years ago and enjoying them then, we were keen to see how the garden had progressed, especially after reading a couple of brutal reviews on here. The day was warm with the occasional shower but proved to be a...More

Possibly one of the most beautiful gardens I have ever visited. With a perfect blend of structure and nature still being allowed to run wild. The beautiful child like imagination of the elderly people that have created this incredible place still evident throughout the gardens,...More

It may have been a great place to visit in it's heyday (around 2001 when it won a tourism award) - but now it is looks unkept & derelict. The brochure is very glossy - but when you get there it is nothing like it...More

Sure there are a few weeds and some paint peeling off the signs - but heck who cares, many would call it rustic - the magnificence of the human made garden alongside of the natural rainforest was wonderful - what a labour of love -...More

They have had weddings there in the past but you would need to approach the owners I would think, it's not a Botanical Garden, so it's not perfectly manicured. if I were you I would take a trip and inspect yourself.
