Blooming flowers and majestic views. This is a must-see in Hamilton City. If you want some lovely photos for the gram, check in the gardens. The cafe was also very cozy. Great coffee.

We took our kid's there for a play at the new playground and for a walk around the gardens. Luckily it was a perfect Sunday morning. Heaps of new projects are on the go so it is not fully open.

Fantastic. A definite must do. Stunning gardens, something for everyone. World class gardens, highly rated by all who visit. The Hamilton Gardens won "International Gardens of the Year" in 2014, and it has got better since then.

Stunning gardens with lovely well marked trails. Take a picnic lunch or make use of the cafe onsite. Allow plenty of time as there is so much to see.

Must visit place with a lot of photo spots. I have visited once when we were shooting a short film. Highlight of this place is the garden themes such as Indian, Chinese, Japanese, English, Egyptian and Italian!
