Amazing beauty everywhere you look in these stunning gardens. The colors are beautiful, both in the flowers and trees. They are beautiful gardens to wander around, finding a new treasure at every turn or to just sit quietly and contemplate life.

If you love birds head to Queens Park. There you will find not only many wild indigenous species, but also avaries with rescued parrots, finches and more. Glorious old trees provide a lush and shady haven to catch your breath and take time out from...More

A beautiful oasis in the city. But take insect repellent if you're loved by mozzies! They were voracious!

A good opportunity to destress and let go of the workday by taking a walk around the gardens and slowing down for an short time. Sit and listen to the birds.

Not far from our accommodation so came here to stroll through these beautiful gardens. The colours were amazing and some of the various trees are not found in my hometown. A very relaxing walk.

We were invited to a Wedding in the park. It was beautiful, so quite and peaceful. Just a beautiful place for Wedding photos. The atmosphere lends itself to weddings.
