Today we visited Camelia Gardens for High Tea to celebrate my vousin's surprise 60th birthday with a group of 14 ladies.

None of... More

Small cafe with lovely outlook onto bushland and gardens . If you want fresh hot scones with jam and cream - go here. Small and peaceful . Take a walk through the beautiful camellia gardens and finish off with your lovely Devonshire teas. You may need to reserve a table in busy times .

Great day out. Plenty of parking down the bottom of the gardens.

No matter what time of year, there is always something flowering. Exercise some caution in the damper parts of the gardens where the... More

We visited the Camellia gardens with our 3 and 5 year old. They had a ball adventuring and running around the gardens. We spent hours there, and could have spent much longer. The parks are great, as are the ducks and the flowers. We will be back!

Had a lovely High Tea. Service was great, nice choices and the scones after were a bonus. Alot of tea choices and other beverages if not a tea drinker. Staff were very friendly and the gardens are lovely to walk around afterwards.
