  • Amazing gardens that are beautifully maintained. There are stacks of seperate picnic areas and shelters, most of them with their own BBQ facilities and toilets blocks. Lots of vast open spaces so kicking a footy around is no problem at all. The gardens also host a neat little cafe next to the children’s playground. This place is definitely worth the trip, especially around the flower gardens and water features opposite the information centre. Enjoy!
  • "I don't review places that I haven't been, seen and experienced myself" Lovely place to relax. Good for picnic. Good for little bit of hiking. Best greenery during November - January. Just beware of Park ranger lady who thinks every visitor with DSLR camera is a professional photographer and will ask to get $30 photography pass. Should have hired someone who's been to Uni, not dumb head.
