An amazing dog friendly off leash walk. Some sculptures and play ground for the kids.

Sadly found this quite underwhelming. Entry areas were nice however beyond that needs a lot of TLC.

This is a lovely and well done Botanic Garden which has the coolest sculptures we have seen in a garden (the crocodile, dragon and even dinosaurs in the Cycad section) When we went sadly the waterfall wasn't flowing but it was a nice walk around the whole garden with heaps of information and the forest sections were so beautiful, like you were in another world "Jonique Life" Follow our journey around Australia on Facebook, Instagram, Tik Tok and YouTube as we highlight wonderful experiences and magical places you can add to your ever growing bucket list.
