Even though this was our second visit there was still plenty to see and marvel over. A genuine treasure of a garden and well worth a good look at. Staff were also very helpful and a great little bistro to boot.

A truly magical day we visited and have lovely photos to mark a memorable experience. A great collection of tropical plants which enjoy the mild weather from the gulf stream.

Dear Pauline, Thank you for your excellent review following your recent visit to Logan Botanic Garden and we hope you come back and enjoy our tropical garden in the near future.

If you love gardens this place is certainly worth visiting, the plants are usually only somewhere in the tropical jungle. It is amazing and you can stay have a coffee and just enjoy the landscape, incredible for a place that far north on the globe.
