“Beautiful gardens”
Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Spent a morning looking around these gardens. Beautifully maintained. Walked up to the seven stairs to heaven waterfall. Enjoyed the morning even though it rained most of the time we were there. Had morning tea at the restaurant there. Would recommend.

“Take a relaxing walk through these lovely gardens.”
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Don't forget to take your camera as a picture is worth a thousand words. They will give you some food for the ducks and they will follow you everywhere.

“Nice wander”
Reviewed 17 March 2017 via mobile

Had a very nice lunch at the cafe followed by a walk around the gardens. Not sure that the gardens are quite worth the $15 admission, but they were nice to look at, and the waterfall was very pretty.

“serene”
Reviewed 4 March 2017

you share your walk with birds, ducks and the sound of water. Very peaceful. Do not forget to stop at the cafe; it is worth it.

“Lovely visit”
Reviewed 2 March 2017

We spent a really enjoyable few hours here. Great meal in the restaurant - a delicious curry soup and fresh local flounder. Beautifully cooked and lovely flavours accompanied by home made bread. Then walked round the delightful gardens and through the bush walk to the waterfalls. The owner was charming and spent time telling us the history of the gardens. Definitely worth a visit.
