A little corner of Australia ( Koala & Goana), A bit of Africa (Elephant) and a sampling of NZ. These areas flowed one to another and there was always something new around each corner. Ensure you have your flat shoes as not all areas are paved. Well worth the trip from town and will be a haven in the heat of summer.

It was lovely to wander through the gardens and take heaps of photos which we look at often. There were even ducks which only moved out of the way at the last minute. It was so peaceful and restored the soul.

Great place for a picnic or a lazy afternoon stroll. Its a ways out of town however and so many of the plants aren't labeled so your not sure what you are looking at. If the fountain's not on look for a button to get them going.

We are lucky enough to live very close and always bring friends and family to visit. Grandchildren love to feed the ducks, see the elephant (!), cross bridges, smell the flowers and make the fountains work. We come for picnics, walks and painting. It is never crowded and always peaceful. We have been on Boxing Day for a family picnic for several years away from crowds on the beach.All for only $5 !!
