We came from the nearby Mount Wolseley to view the Altamont gardens.
Anyone interested in trees or plants will love it - many interesting specimens are there with identifying name labels.
I would stress that you need to keep children within reach at all times due to the nearness of water.
A shortish walk would be to do a lap of the lake, coming back to briefly view the walled garden interior.
Of course if you have any interest in trees at all, you could be pausing to view more than walking!
Don't expect a kitchen garden in the walled garden area - it is mostly taken over with plant sales at present, and a portion with some apple trees planted in it was out-of-bounds when we visited. There is a small tea-room within the walled garden part as well.
Internal signage is quite attactive - etched and whited lettering in a cursive script on roof-slates, with the appearance of being hand-carved.
A nice random touch was a vintage Raleigh bike near the tea-rooms.
Overall, a lovely garden with plenty of items of interest. I will definitely visit again next time I am in the area.
