The Botanic Gardens have a good walking track that meanders through a mini rain forest. There are plenty of different trees and tropical plants to see.

Very beautiful and calm place to visit. I like the way it has different sections so it doesn't all look the same. The pond itself is magnificent, with ducks and TURTLES coming up to the surface. The kids loved it.
