The gardens are definitely lovely - we went during the day which was nice, but I imagine the Christmas Lights at night to be even better. At first we felt the entry price was too expensive, however when you see the amount of work that would go into maintaining the gardens you begin to realise why it costs so much.
Very disappointing that picnic lunches are not allowed - a designated picnic lawn would definitely improve the experience, especially for people with children. It would make the day more affordable for families. However, the food at the cafe was well priced and delicious - very impressed given that they have the monopoly.
The extra $7 per person for the train is a bit pricey.
Overall a lovely place.

Absolutely fabulous lights here. They will charm the adults and bring smiles to the faces of the kids. Very, VERY well done.

the gardens during the day are beautiful, just a but boring during the day. The cafe is expensive and not much on offer, all pre made rubbish, l would expect lovely salads etc but no. The train is available to ride but is $7 per adult so total rip off.
