Take a self-guided tour to watch marine birds and view 11 species of cycad plants. Walk around the waterfall and ponds of the Rainforest Gully, where you can see many of the 450 species of palm trees the Gardens contain. Admire coastal plants and a mangrove near the gardens' beach. A shady playground is also available to entertain children. Make sure you put on sunscreen and insect repellent before your visit.

  • Glad we did the Gardens although some areas in definite need of some TLC.
  • Bring your own picnic or get a coffee at Eva's cafe. A hidden gem. Quiet and so beautiful... Great play space for the kids also. Well worth a visit.
