These gardens are just beautiful. With fountains and ponds with lots of ducks to feed. There is a cafe that has lovely cakes and coffee/tea. Worth a look.

Love this place only minutes from the heart of the city. Great for family time and photos - don't forget to look for the Chinese gardens on Tasman Street side
