Spectacular views over the bay, a wonderful array of native plants, well kept paths and plenty of seats to sit and admire the views. The information panels are very informative, lovely poems and small garden statues spread throughout. Owners very friendly and happy to chat.

Lovely setting looking over the water. The hosts are helpful. Even in autumn, plenty in flower. Nice to see a garden with swathes of plants you can immerse yourself in.

Thanks very much for your kind words. We've had a bit a rain through winter and into spring and the garden has never looked better.

Charmaine - if you had spoken to me at the time I'm sure we could have resolved this. We meet all visitors to introduce the garden and are happy to debrief at the end of their visit. I suspect the "weeds" were in fact native...More
