Love the history of the garden. I recommend coming here on spring time when the flowers are in bloom. My hubby and I did the walk even it's drizzling and didn't regret doing it. Don't miss reading the stories and descriptions as you go and...More

The Everglades get some mixed reviews and I think it's because people go there expecting a grand colonial house. What you'll find is an interesting enough 20th century house, but the gardens are the main attraction. The landscaping and the vision of this garden design...More

This tourist attraction is very beautiful and has much to explore with the 13 arces of beautiful terrace gardens with an old mansion and with a grotto. It would be recommended to have average level of fitness due to the uneven pathways and stair it...More

We really enjoyed the garden and the kids liked the waterfall grotto. The house was smallish, we enjoyed the garden much more. The stairs inside were quite steep and might not suit less mobile people. The toilets were very clean and there was a cafe...More

It’s a nice walk in the park. Park outside for free and pay for the entrance fee at the main office before going into the park. We spent about 2 hours exploring this place, brisk walking up and down and to the trails. Not so...More

We wandered around the gardens. It is lovely and serene. The Grotto Pool is amazing. We thought the cafe looked a bit outdated.

This National trust owned and operated location is outstanding. Unfortunately we were not able to see the house as the tearooms were fully booked. The grounds are devine and a testament to the vision and work of the owner and their head gardener. Make sure...More

I think it would be a lovely place for children, especially in the garden - all the nooks and crannies outside and the space to run and jump too. Just be careful inside the house, but that won't take long.

Small place? I think not. It takes a while to explore Everglades Gardens given its many levels and large area. The entry fee is comparable with fees for entering Mt Wilson gardens. If you belong to the National Trust you... More
