Not only is there an amazing cafe located inside the gardens, but also you are guaranteed to walk off your meal before leaving. They are beautiful gardens to walk around and I hope to be back soon to see more.

It was chasing the ducks after the hen escaped him! Nicely tended gardens. Relaxing walk through a miriad of glades and forests. Cafe was closed before I arrived at 3:30pm.

Such a wonderful destination to melt into the environment. The Gardens are a credit to the curator and his staff and a lovely escape from the road for a wear traveller.

Looking for something to do to kill time in Gladstone, this is the place for you. Leads on to several other walks and is gorgeous. Great coffee and cake from the little cafe over the water.
