We went there for a picnic and really enjoyed it. Beautiful selection of Frangipanis and 'Bismarck' palms. Worthwhile taking a stroll through it.

Great place to cool off under the shade of the trees. Paths for little ones to ride their bikes, swings, picnic grounds and some animals in cages.

Pretty tropical gardens with informative sign posting and a small kids play area. Lots of birds (and insects)! Nice walking trails but a little uneven so no good for scooters. Lots of picnic tables and seating in the shade. Very peaceful, good for a relaxing hour or two.

A lovely shady park with a small maze and play equipment for kids also an aviary with a cockatoo. We grabbed some fish and chips and took the footy for the kids to run around with. Tale mosquitos repellant though.

Had a lovely yoga and meditation session amongst the luscious greenery of the botanical garden. If yog want to wind down and just relax amongst nature, take a blanket and a book and just be.

These gardens include a rainforest area, a cactus garden, a large herb garden, and lawns which lend themselves to events such as outdoor weddings.
