Some friends recommended this garden before we left the UK. Glad we followed their advice. The drive across the Tapu-Coroglen road was interesting, i.e. a scary dirt road with tight corners, but a lot a fun all the same. The gardens were fantastic, assuming you like tropical gardens. The walk to the waterfalls were also worth the 30 minute trek through the forest. Beautiful gardens, well laid out and maintained, then leading into forests of ferns. Great for a couple of hours away from the crowds. Not that there are many crowds in the Coromandel Peninsular.
