We used the Blue Bus to get to this out of the way home and gardens. . The home and gardens were developed in the 1930s by a wealthy industrialist and his nurseryman friend. The house is a fascinating art nouveau "sculpture."

Everglades is iconic and worth a stroll around. The gardens are beautiful and the views are lovely - get a nice taste of Australia's European heritage and bush in just an hour.

A man with a vision created his refuge in this peaceful mountain setting. A worthwhile place to visit and enjoy both the gardens and the Art Deco period house. Admission fee contribute to maintaining the property.

I rather think that No is the answer, unless your dog is a companion dog.
