“Reasonable diversion from the crowds”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Rambling paths and a few nice spots for viewing but not much peace and quiet on a Sunday. Well tended but not all plants labelled so weren't always sure what we were looking at.

“Great place to picnic”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Weather was perfect to have a wander around this garden created mainly by volunteers with assistance from council. It is a credit to the people involved. No entry fee but there are donations boxes. Look for the large eels in the pond. The rainforest creek was running strongly so it was nice to sit by it. Some old world gondwana trees.The camilleas are wonderful too. Lots of choices for picnic with tables in several areas. Watch out for the brazen kookaburras who will steal your food in a lightning fly by. Don't feed the wildlife it only makes them worse and not good for them either.

Hidden away but worth the search. This is completely free too. SO much to see ! Nice to bring a picnic down and sit back and watch Nature at work. Loved having a look through. Nice change from the busy city.
