Great to visit, well labeled plantings, beautifully designed. Knowledgeable staff. Bundle up if it is winter as it can get windy up on the mountain! Lovely views from the overlooks. Free entry.

Was just passing through, the ambience and tranquility is epic. Don't abuse it, if you read this you are implicitly agreeing to only visit once or twice a year. A sanctuary, which should never be overrun by crowds.

Botanic gardens anywhere are only great if the weather co-operates and fortunately my visit was on a sunny winter's day. Lots of unique plants to interest the visitor from abroad but restaurant food was bland and hugely overpriced. Better to bring a picnic and eat...More

What a spectacular place this is. It's free to the public. There is a cafe and also a kiosk where you can grab a quick coffee. The air is so clear and the gardens are just magnificent.
