We went for the afternoon tea and were offered several combination of small finger foods, good enough for a late lunch. The garden was an after thought, as the view outside the window looked very attractive, and boy we were delighted with this side tour.

We had a delicious Tea. It doesn't look like a lot of food, but it was plenty for a meal and each item was delicious. And then, we wandered the gardens. Large enough to give you ideas, but not overwhelming.

We visited the gardens and took a self guided tour. You can have afternoon tea at the house if you desire. The garden tour is by donation only.

The grounds and flowers are just okay. I like Government House grounds way better and you can't beat the Bucharts for flowers. It is not cheap to go in and the restaurant is small and the food not great.
