Wow! Stunning! Amazing! Fantastic! Beautiful!..........Words cannot describe the beauty of these gardens, and they are completely the work of Volunteers.
The purpose of this garden is to conserve the natural features of the area, so the garden with azaleas, spring bulbs, rhododendrons, towering trees both native and exotic and lake, all intermingle nicely.
There are more than 1500 rhododendrons in the gardens. Another feature of the garden is the beautiful natural fern glades and the abundance of native flora & fauna. We came across wild Crimson Rosella Parrots who were not very afraid of us!
We visited late October, and the garden was at it stunning best, this is a WORLD CLASS GARDEN, and the ADMISSION IS A DONATION......you can't beat that.
Elsewhere in the world, you would be paying a lot of money to see a garden of this calibre.
Picnic areas are available, and there is a cafe with a balcony which overlooks the garden. We had a nice, reasonably priced, Devonshire morning tea here.
I also bought Calendars of the gardens for the very cheap price of $10, a great gift for someone, it comes with an envelope and is not too heavy to post.
OPEN from 9.00-4.00 daily Daily access for cars, Walk in anytime
PLEASE GIVE A DONATION as this goes towards the upkeep of the garden.
There is no set admission fee.
HAVE PLENTY OF FREE SPACE ON YOUR MEMORY CARD!
