Visited this spectacular attraction but the weather wasn't kind so we were unable to spend as much time as we'd like. The restaurant is undergoing renovation so next visit we will book in to enjoy the amazing view s well as the food!

Called in on Monday of the long weekend. Very crowded, people everywhere. We didn't even try to enter the restaurant. The garden is extensive, interesting and well laid out. But unfortunately the lack of rain is starting to have an impact on the plants.More

The Botanic Garden was beautiful. There were a lot of flowers we haven't seen before. We found it refreshing that there was free entry, free parking and clean toilets. Families seemed to enjoy the open spaces, with lots of kids playing hide and seek.More
