Was struck by how striking and impressive the trees were leading to the Botanic Gardens Restaurant. As it was a rainy day, did not have time to explore the beautiful gardens; but was impressed with what I saw. Great for taking family photos. Will return.

Lovely spot in the city to escape. Beautiful, mature gardens with a variety of different things to see. Not as big as melbourne/Sydney gardens, but good for a stroll. Cafes could do with some improvement.

I can't say I know anything about plants but the botanic garden is great for a nice relaxing stroll, maybe take a picnic and relax on the grass and admire the flowers in bloom or go to one of the cafes in the gardens.
