We visited the gardens based on the recommendations of others, but we found it a bit underwhelming. Don't get me wrong, the gardens themselves are quite nice and it is pleasant to stroll through them, especially when you manage to escape the crowds, and it was nice to find a quiet spot (when you could find one) to just sit...

Despite some construction work going on, and what looks like a new amusement park going in, my wife and I found the gardens to be beautiful and full of Autumn colours. Thought we'd only be there for an hour or two, but it took us a good 4 hours to walk around and see everything, taking plenty of time for... More

Spent an hour here with our 3 children. Gardens well maintained but found it overpriced for the hour it took to meander through the gardens, although it could be possibly justified due to maintenance costs. However, once was enough and won't go back due to cost.

Gardens are really nice, the construction takes up a lot of space though and there appears to be an amusement park going up in place of the orchard which is disappointing. The cafe inside the actual gardens isn't great, and I don't understand why you can't take your own food in to picnic in the gardens.

Really overrated gardens, not worth the entry fare $29 per head, the train ride was exta on top of that. The place is run down, especially the story book land, it's needs a lot of fixing up, the owns are only worried about building an amazement park, which I don't think is necessary, and WHY are they building this, just...

The gardens don't change. A couple of new shops, but basically why change a good thing. We ate in one of the cafes. Good food, nice atmosphere and friendly chatty staff.

Not worth the entry fee and then the train ride is extra again on top. Pretty stop but very small and not want the brochuere shows.

This was a wonderful stay we had multiple types of accommodation from cabins, rooms to camping (in van) and it was great, it has a lot to offer and is a friendly and beautiful place. Highly recommended.
