Beautiful waterfall and park, will be good when the construction is over. Has a big kids park, a river, paved paths and an amphitheatre. Not the best if on foot, but easy to get to if you're driving

Stopped here to do handover on our new caravan. Was a good flat area for campers and the gardens were beautiful green and well maintained Directly across from Stockland shopping centre so easy access to fuel, food and shops.

Only a short walk due to construction work being carried out. But well worth it, the waterfalls are stunning.

The parts of Kershaw Gardens that I was able to see were very nice. I visited in July 2017 and a cyclone back in April had delivered some damage that is still being repaired. Even so, you can still walk by the waterfall and the...More

Most of it is closed due to the recent cyclone damage it looks like they have a lot to do yet. I really wouldn't bother if you're a tourist at the moment. The playground is open but there is a much better playground along the...More

The gardens are beautiful. It is a shame that the playground no longer has the bat cave paddling thing anymore. Nice place to go as a family or with friends to relax or play sports.

Hi ,sorry but I can't say I actually saw any one there with dogs Nor did I see any signs that said dog friendly area. Rockhampton information centre very helpful so maybe if you gave them a ring they could help.
