We visited back in April for our honey moon and was expecting to see natives but got charged full price just to see weeds , it was unfortunate we could get half price admin as there wasn't much to see

My wife and I visited the gardens on our honeymoon to Tasmania, my wife was looking forward to seeing native plants and flowers but due the low levels of rain fall there was very little to be seen, we understood that this cannot be helped but it would have been nice that we were clearly advised to this before paying...

A lovely view but the native garden, struggling with low rainfall, disappoints. The local " characters" spread around the garden are, at best, twee. We were not sure the owner had a plan of what was trying to be achieved other than native plants on a steep hillside, some points of history, others of education and a selling operation. The...

Grateful to Margaret and Bill for all their hard work and passion creating this delightful place to share with us. Meandering through bush areas and gardens planted to attract the birds and grasslands areas beside the water.

Saw advert in tourist leaflet and so glad we went. Lovely coastal setting for native gardens that have been, and still are, a labour of love for the owners. Great to meet them and talk about what they have been doing. We wandered around the main garden area looking at planting then stopped for coffee, popped back to the car... More

Hadn't heard of this place but fortunately friends had and recommended it. Wonderful wander around the garden which is over 9.5 hectare. Some lovely quirky touches added to the garden which I enjoyed. Shame we didn't have longer to ponder and have a cuppa at the end of our walk.

This has been on our list of places to see for a while and we finally got around to going. I wasn’t sure what to expect since I didn’t know a lot about it, but it was defiantly worth the time to go. The garden is a project of Margaret and Bill who moved here from Sydney (although Margaret was... More

An immense amount of work has been and is being done to make these lovely and interesting gardens a pleasure to visit. Well worth the time spent in exploring the different areas and keeping an eye open for the many birds that also enjoy the space.

What an awe inspiring place. So many types of plants and birds in a beautiful environment. We even saw wallabies! If you have any interest at all in Australian plants this is the place to visit. The setting - looking out over the water - is just gorgeous and you can't help but admire the work that must have been... More

The garden and views were brilliant. French explorer Baudin, anchored in the bay for several weeks to explore native flora and fauna. The garden is well laid out with walking tracks and signage. The viewsoutstanding and the birdlike amazing, with 2 resident potaroos well worth a visit
