From the outside you won't see much but it's a must. We were hesitant where to enter go not as the entrance fees were $10 adult $5 kid. Glad we did because the garden was amazing.

Had a good look through the garden and loved the quirky art but my kids needed a toilet as we had eaten and traveled a fair distance and I presumed that we could use facilities as we paid the entry. No such luck. Directed to...More

The owner must not only be tvery alented but also imaginative. When visiting Marysville include Bruno's on your to do list as it makes for a very different but interesting activity. Both kids and adults will enjoy.
