“Flower Power”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Great floral garden displays - well worth a walk through in the spring. The night sessions are good too - some creative lighting effects and use of coloured light.

“A riot of colour”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Amazing displays of colourful Spring flowers. There is always a theme which is hard to see well unless you are a bird but it is still wonderful. Go early and avoid the crowds especially if you are a photographer. Paint a gnome if you have time!

“It is really very pretty to visit, as I have been there a few times.”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Flowers are breathtaking, the whole setup is very good indeed, great for all to enjoy. Food is available and there is seating outside for a coffee etc. It is well worth a visit some people like to make a week-end of it and that would also be very nice.

“Not as good as it used to be.”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Maybe I am remembering through rose coloured glasses, excuse the pun but somehow the dusty paths, expensive shops and eating venues and tacky children's rides seem to detract from the still wonderful flower displays. It all seems to be a bit tired. Maybe they need to think of something to revitalise the displays along the lines of the amazing Agriculture displays at the Royal Easter Show in Sydney. Displays showing fruit and agriculture into art would be a great addition.
