“Peaceful and pretty”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

although there were several cars in the car park, we never felt crowded and could wander and enjoy the plants and bird-life. We really like the "garden rooms."

“Delightful find”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

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.

“Peaceful”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

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.

“Pleasant and spacious gardens”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

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.
