Walked here to eat my packed lunch after visiting the Haigh Chocolate Factory and it was a perfect and most interesting spot. It was larger and more multi-faceted than I expected; tranquil and a lovely haven in a city.

I love this small garden, neatly maintained and came here 8 years ago for the first time, It did not have the same impact a 2nd time but even so I would recommend it to visit.

And boy, do I mean small. The garden is beautiful, no doubt. But you can travel every path over the Adelaide Himeji Garden in 10 minutes or less. The Japanese theme is as close as you can feel to being in an actual Japanese garden, which was appreciated, but the 30min walk from our hotel felt a little pointless when... More

Very calming, love the landscaping and water features. Great to take a stroll in with the kids. It feels quite private and is wonderful when you have it to yourself.

This little park is very beautiful and nicely maintained but is very small. So if you're coming from a long distance just to see it, it's not worth the trouble. But if you're staying closer, and is a green lover and a landscape lover, it's definitely worth a visit. Entrance is free.

Lovely gardens just south of the city. I had hoped it would be bigger than it was, but it was still a nice retreat. Would be a nice spot for a picnic on a sunny day.

Visited here a few weeks ago. There is no entrance fee, and as soon as you go through the gates you feel like you're entering another world. It is calming and peaceful, lovely to walk around and just try to relax from the stresses of normal every day life. If you feel you need to just switch off and chill... More

The walk around the garden reading all the signs took about 15 minutes as it is very small and for us didn't rate getting off the bus especially for visiting it. If you have a special interest in Japanese gardens and culture then it would suit you but otherwise it was disappointing.

Small, peaceful garden, great for solo picnic or a intimate group. Place for solitude or meditation.
