It's not a big botanic garden but it has a nice feel. with enough short themed tracks to give a good sample of the beautiful greenery in the area. The paths are easy to navigate and it's definitely well worth a look.

An outstanding garden and one of the most relaxing places I’ve been. It’s hard to believe this is run by volunteers - they must be a very committed group of gardeners and I offer my thanks for creating this haven. The rainforest walk is stunning...More

We visited the gardens today and were impressed by the passionate volunteers. The Sooty Owl walk was educational for all ages including us grey nomads! Loved the hydrangeas, orchids and crepe myrtle walk. A wonderful visit. Two thumbs up.

The gardens are amazing and created and maintained by volunteers to a very high standard. They are located in Forsythia Drive off Long Road, north end, (Long Rd is where Gallery Walk is located). Well worth a visit!
