A beautiful walk with Australian fauna and some history about how the Aboriginals use the bushes. Great views and we also went down onto the beach and spoke to a local. Doesnt look like much at first, but worth it.

We spent the morning taking in the gardens, there was still some cleaning up to do after the cyclone. We always include the Botannical Gardens on our holidays, so didn't disappoint.

Nice little garden area and paths to walk around. The gardens are only small but they are green and a small amount of water. Nice open fields for a family to have a picnic etc with a small cafe and toilets facilities available.More

The gardens are gorgeous. A shame that the recent cyclone had taken out some of of the massive mahogany trees but hopefully they will be replaced and grow again. It was still a lovely place to visit.
