“Gardens in the city”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

It's a shame that these gardens are so close to a very busy and noisy road as they are well laid out and lots of local native plants are featured.

“lovely, but lacking facilities”

Needs more toilets. Long way to walk from one end of the gardens to the other, trying to find a toilet.

“Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

Well the walk it self is fun and great for some exercise. The waterfalls and windmills are great. Although the excitement wears off once you walk around further. The monorail ride is not very maintained and the gradens are not very well maintained. But the exercise is great and the playground is great for small children. The gardens and open areas are great for kite flying or even just playing ball games.

Overall a great family picnic spot and family outing.

“Tumbling Waters on Main Highway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

Kershaw Gardens located on the Bruce Highway in Rockhampton would have to be on of the most accessable & creative use of an old Tip site now showcasing what we can do with the right insight & forethought
