A great place for lunch overlooking a sensational garden. Make sure you get a window seat or outside if the weather is fine. Beautiful homemade brioche and a nice wine list.

This was a lovely garden to take a stroll through on a sunny autumn afternoon. It is very well manicured and features many beautiful plants and trees. $10 for adults and free for kids.

Visited the gardens with a friend from NSW and we had a lovely afternoon at Cloudehill. Please note there is a $10 entry fee per person, which I happily paid to help keep the gardens as beautiful as they are. We also had a delicious...More

Nice formal gardens but for your $10 you'll get through it very quickly. There is also a nice garden shop and plant sale area.
