  • A beautiful place recommended to us by one of the shop owners in “The gallery walk”. Such a peaceful and serene place. So lush and green.

  • Beautiful place for a stroll, a picnic or an afternoon quietly reading a book surrounded by gorgeous scenery. There is something for all ages, an absolute delight to visit. My kids love the Owl Trail with its hobbit like house, mosaics, creek, theater and animal sculptures. I love the diversity of the gardens, clean amenities and how stroller/pram friendly the whole place is.
  • We got there at 9am so the car park was empty. This place really is beautiful and so well thought out, the different walks are brilliant and the attention to detail is world class. Our kids loved exploring and reading the different information signs explaining different facts. Great that there are public toilets and picnic tables too. Beautiful, peaceful tranquility in the rainforest!
