A welcome break for travellers

Plan to stop here if you're passing through Bundy. It's a cool respite, with a lovely cafe and a little train (on Sundays) to keep the kids amused. And ducks.

Beautiful gardens and plenty of walking paths around some wonderful lakes. There is also a cane train ride around the gardens which was not in operation on our visit.
