Lovely gardens. What musst have been like for the family of the original owner! Lovely trees , scrubs, settings, views with lawns and river included. Quiet, secluded great for a 'blob out'. Great photo ops.

We visited Mona Vale which is an Historic Homestead to experience their High Tea which certainly lived upto expectations. Excellent service served by capable waitress who explained all the food on the cake stand & afterwards wandered round the gardens.
