Huge, well kept botanical gardens. Great play area and pool for kiddies. No cafe anymore, as is currently under earthquake repair - but all the more reason to pack a picnic and find a nice spot outside!

Did the caterpillar tour of the gardens, lovely, friendly and informative Karen drove us. Make sure you go into the museum, absolutely fascinating.

A really nice botanic garden which reminded me in the slightest of the famous one in Sydney. This one was however more cosy and easy to get around. It was beautiful flowers and enormous trees that was amazing. I actually came here twice to just walk around. It seemed you could rent a canoe and paddle the stream beside it also, which looked real nice. All in all totally worth a visit, whatever age or knowledge of plants.

take a gentle stroll around the gardens, gives a peaceful break from the city, when we went it was a warm sunny day kids were playing in the paddling pools and loads of people were relaxing on the lawns and benches and along the rivers edge, grab an icecream and take in the scenery
