Even on a hot day the gardens remain cool and inviting. The large avenue of trees down the center of the garden provide shade and peace away from the city. Birds are in abundance and each twist and turn takes you to some magical aspect.

Have been there many times - the best place for a leisurely stroll in the afternoon. Finished it off with a great cup of tea in the tea house. IMopressive trees and plant from all over the world

This is one of the best botanic gardens I have visited. It is very attractive, well laid out and beautifully maintained and extremely informative. There are some very interesting buildings as well. We visited early on a Monday morning and there was hardly anyone else...More

Well laid out gardens with many feature areas including the hothouse for tropical plants. Easy to get to, especially as the tram now runs there & very convenient for the city itself.
