These gardens are much smaller than the Alfred Nicholls garden but is still with a look. Perhaps do this one as well as the Alfred Nicholls. Doing both should take about 2 to 2.5 hours.

This garden is badly in need of some maintenance. We didn't bother seeing the whole garden because the paths were quite slippery with moss. We visited in early November and we had missed the best of the rhododendron colours and weren't keen to brave the...More

Have you ever visited the delightful, Hancock's Daffodil Farm during their 4-week festival? It was our spring bloom starting point and only a 10-minute drive from Menzies Creek to George Tindale in Sherbrook. This free entry, small garden doesn't have the public profile of the...More

This is a beautiful small garden that is out of the way but a pleasant walk. It has a large bolder that will turn on its axis if you push it. Great for the family.

Wonderful history of this place with outstanding efforts of volunteers to keep it going. Some spectacular examples of hydrangea's and a bonus to see some lyre birds wandering around. The kids loved the maze of paths to explore

Just down the road from Alfred Nicholas Gardens is this gem of a spot to bring the family for a picnic. Never seems to be as busy as it’s neighbour but it’s worth checking out. I always visit as well as Alfred Nicholas

Well maintained and beautiful flowers. It's a lovely little place for a stroll. A bit hilly, but manageable even with our 5 year-old walking alongside.

Short distance from Alfred Nicholas gardens - so do a combo. Beautifully laid out on a declining hill (from entrance) with masses of azaleas, hydrangeas, rhododendrons. fushcias & many more. Well tended to by volunteers in a more formal layout, much smaller than Alfred Nicholas....More
