    The Hamilton Gardens are the perfect tranquil distraction from the stress of life. Lots to see. Beautiful plants around every corner. The team that designed and maintains the gardens should be very proud. We could have spent all day here. Our teenage daughters really enjoyed it. They joked they have now see the world. Something to see for everyone. Well worth the two hour drive. Can't believe it is still free - we will be back!

    Plenty of parking and seating to enjoy your ice cream. Next to Camarosa Restaurant that belongs to the same owner. Pick your own strawberries and raspberries if they are in season. Entry fees applied. They sell freshly picked berries or frozen if not in season. Real fruit ice cream or yogurt. They do coffee as well. They have a dedicated play area with plenty of seating for parents to sit and watch the kids while enjoying their ice cream

    Despite it not being “pick your own” time of year or day, this place was great fun. With acres of berries growing it was good just to see them and then go to the shop to purchase some (some fresh, some frozen) and indulge in some of the very nicest ice cream with your choice of fresh fruit. However you look at it, with smiling, friendly service and huge serves, the ice cream alone is worth the trip!

    Sat on the shady side but the whole of the stadium has excellent views plus TV's and score board.
    A great stadium to see any event.

    The smell is amazing! A beautiful peaceful place, with delicious coffee available. We have been coming here for 3 years in a row now, to pick lavender and blueberries. Quiet areas to sit & enjoy the scenery, easy walking & a little shop full of lavender goodies. There is also edible lavender!
