Gorgeous flower forest. Excellent place to grab a bite to eat too. Beware that the paths are steep and might be difficult if you have any mobility issues.

Nicely combines with Coco Hill - they are very close together. Lovely plants and a relatively comfortable walk suitable for wheelchairs and walking difficulties. Simple cafe which is shaded and offers hot food. Decent toilets too.
