A lovely relaxing place to visit. Nestled in Nelson, it was a nice place to get away from it all and enjoy the beautiful gardens.

We visited this as my husband used to go there as young boy. They are small but as it was a hot day it was lovely and cool under the shade of the trees. A peaceful short walk around is just what we needed.

Delightful well laid out series of gardens right next door to the Super Gallery. Immaculately maintained and containing an interesting range of NZ plants and classical species with lots of well identified trees among little bridges and water features. Easy to stroll around in half an hour, as well as being a good spot to just sit and relax.

A surprisingly small botanic gardens by Victorian standards but even in today's rain well worth a stroll after visiting the adjacent Suter Art Gallery. Nice duck pond for the children but perhaps the strongest item is the explanatory boards for the significant number of large specimen trees, most of which were planted in 1890s. Must be a nice spot when... More

I walked through here after visiting the Suter art gallery . The Gardens themselves are beautifully kept and offer something for everyone. Families were busy feeding the ducks, others were relaxing in chairs round the rose gardens but most when I was there were listening to a school Scottish pipe band practising! This was quite a surprise and a welcome... More

Although it was March, there were still a few flowers around to see. There were lots of ducks scrambling around trying to get anything that was thrown in the pond for them to eat - very entertaining. Well worth a visit as there are different areas of the gardens.

There are various walking routes around the city of Nelson and a walk to the Queens Gardens is one of the most central. The gardens are beautifully kept with a rose garden and many interesting trees as well as ducks and fish. An ornamental bridge in the centre provides a good photo opportunity.
