We saw this beautiful structure before our Caves Tour and weren't disappointed. Unfortunately this and all surrounding areas of Wellington/Dubbo are in serious drought so these gardens weren't at their best. Take a walk around the complete gardens and get a real sense of calmness....More

A very small, but calming place, with traditional water features. It would be beautiful in spring. Worth a look while at the caves.

Manicured grounds with attractive trees and shrubs together with pond and watercourse with reticulated water. Small bridge and rotunda compliment this and make easy viewing of the large coy fish swimming in the pond. Ideal for small children keeping them interested .

Very pretty and well laid out gardens. Lovely shady areas to sit on a hot day. Not a huge garden, but a lovely, quiet place to reflect.

I'd be disappointed if I'd made a special trip here as it's quite small. We're staying at the Caves complex next door so it was ok. Pretty garden and water features. Large fish but water was a bit murky.
