  • What an awesome experience it was to look at the floral beauty. So much hard work must have gone in to maintain the flowers. Excellent display. Delight for the eyes. Great atmosphere. Perfect for family time. You can find food, beer, some joy rides, music and shop amidst beautiful flowers and their fragrance. Highly recommended.
  • Beautiful flowers and getting very commercial with shops everywhere. I think the whole experience would be better if the retail area was in one place and leave the garden free from tents full of hawkers. We were there on dogs day out and had a great time. The nuts were good too.
