Newcastle Off The Beaten Path: 50 reviews and 98 photos
I re-visited this place, this time in summer when many of the flowering plants have moved on from their blossoming stage but, not so the cacti.
In addition, it's peak time for dragonflies, one of my favourite photographic subjects. The main one there is called a fiery skimmer but many others can be seen as well, including tau emeralds, rosy skimmers and quite a few I haven't identified yet.
There are many aspects to the gardens and much has been done since I was last there. Indeed, there are many sculptures that weren't there when I last visited.
There's a cafe where light meals and drinks are available if you feel a bit peckish after your walking.
