Immediately I walked in, after having winced at the $10 entry fee, I was glad I'd come. I later returned with my partner and we spent over an hour here. It's hard to believe when you realize what a small area it is but, they've...More

This garden is a very pleasant place to go for a morning or afternoon. The map doesn't seem to scale, and isn't overly useful, but the garden isn't too large so it would be difficult to get lost. It would have been nice to have...More

An extremely peaceful garden with a hotchpot of pathways - so many it was difficult to know which ones you had been done and which ones remained undiscovered. As a colourful garden I was a little disappointed but the peacefulness made up for that. A...More

It was raining, so we appreciated the complimentary umbrellas... but the rain made for simply stunning photography! What gorgeous plants, shrubs and trees to wander through.

These gardens are a bit out of the way situated in an old quarry on the side of Mount Eden. On a Sunday they were remarkably quiet. It’s a steep area with Hillary's Height (beware, it's a dead end) exceedingly steep. Coming down on a...More
