A beautiful lush garden in which plant colour and form are used to great effect. The meandering paths invite you to explore, and if you do you will discover sculptures or perhaps a quiet area with a a table and chairs or a harbour view. It is a little touch of paradise.

Went for a wander and came across this little jem. Kids spent some time exploring the various aspects of the garden while hubby and I rested our sore feet under the shade of a tree. Nice little place, very peaceful - except my noisy kids!!! Beautiful views of the harbour and very close to Luna Park so great day out!!

This is an enchanting and beautiful part of Sydney. Wendy"s secret garden was truly a secret to me up until recently. Beautiful gardens overlooking wonderful Sydney Harbour. Combine this with a trip to neaby Blues Point Reserve and the Mary MacKillop Chapel.

What a wonderful little place this is. Such fantastic use of what can only be described as unusable garden space, so imaginative and delightful. Well done to the designer

What an amazing place. The gardens are really nicely done. We spent about one hour walking around. Over the last 20 years the landscape has been carefully shaped by the meticulous choice of plants and rocks and features of Wendy Whiteley. The story behind these garden is worth reading. One of the highlights of our Sydney experience.

I had read and seen stories of this garden over the years and had wanted to visit for awhile. We caughtthe ferry to Milsons Point and walked around. The walk is lovely with harbour views. The garden is like out of a fairy story. Moody with lots of little paths leading you around the garden. Lots of garden furniture and... More

This is a bit of a tricky place to get to, so download instructions from the website. Train to North Sydney or Milson's Point may be your best travel option, unless you get there early for a parking spot nearby. The garden itself is split on a number of levels and, as is only to be expected, some parts are... More

A beautiful spot to either have a quick walk around or else bring some lunch and eat at one of the little tables provided. All credit to Wendy and her volunteers.
