We recently visited and enjoyed the cooler place. A nice walk with a variety of plants and areas. Plenty of water features (which are dirty,) and many birds and turtles. Reasonable coffee at the coffee shop.

These gardens are beautiful. Well maintained (work was in progress as we walked around) and very easy to walk around. There is a train, but we chose to walk. The bird life coupled with the plants make this a must see in Bundaberg.

The gardens are wheelchair friendly. I think the train only runs on Sundays and some other days during the school holidays. It was not running the day we were there.
