Had been here before, but not to the house. What a great house this is. It takes you right back many decades ago with all the art deco bling. Don't forget to check out the bathrooms. The gardens are just magnificent when the azaleas and...More

Beautiful gardens - the kind of place that's beautiful any time of the year. In winter, it was misty and damp and such a treat to watch the mist rising off the gums. Don't be afraid of the damp - it makes the earth smell...More

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

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
