Significant range of Camellias mixed in with a heap of other plants. Excellent little Cafe within the grounds but make sure you book. Limited parking on the grounds but a little more available if you head up the access street.

One of Sutherland Council's better efforts in the scheme of things. The Gardens are a peaceful & tranquil escape from the over development slowly strangling the Shire & Sydney ! You can enjoy a nice walk thru the grounds, the kids can feed the bird...More
