Great place to visit with a group of seniors or on your own. I did both. Lots of colour and there was entertainment through the day. A CWA café for a cuppa. Great photos can be taken here.

We viewed the Corbett Gardens at the beginning of October, after the full tulip festival was over. It was still a wonderful display and we didn't have to pay for entry. Great Value - FREE!

We visited the Corbett Gardens as part of Tulip Time. The air was crisp and the flowers were very pretty. To have so many tulips in the same bed is a wonderful display of colour.

Delightful display of massed tulips and bluebells in the middle of town, with plantings for other seasons. Surrounded by beautiful trees. Senior Cits and CWA offer delights most days as well.

Visited to see the Tulip Time festival. The drive a lot shorter than that to Canberra. The garden is quite small but the limited tulips presented a pleasant site. Unfortunately this place will always be compared to Floriade and will always come short on expectation....More

An excellent display. Compact area with lots of tulips on display. Suggest going in afternoon as a lot quieter after tour buses departed. Beautiful fresh sandwiches and scones available from CWA rooms on site. Only a couple of flower/plant sellers so don't expect to do...More
