Don't be fooled by the name. The parts of the park which are free are not well-maintained. The pond is yucky, and the plants are not trimmed and growing haphazardly.

Who would believe there is a beautiful Botanical Garden hidden is suburbia! A worthwhile place to visit on a weekend. The Japanese Garden there is superb. An oasis of tranquility. Nearby is a small aviary and a small Arts Centre displaying works of local artists. A pleasant day out.

An excellent hidden treasure in Auburn That is open to everybody. Beautifully maintained with great walking tracks and plenty of areas for a picnic or just a peaceful sit down. Especially love the Japanese garden area, watching the koi is very restful.

I went with my girlfriend. They have few things to see. The Japanese garden was most attractive with lots of fishes in the pond.

It is a great place to take your kids for watching kangaroos, emus, peacocks and ducks for free. Kids enjoy a lot and are always ready to go.

You wouldn't think that there would be a beautiful oasis in the middle of auburn..... but there is. Worth a leisurely stroll on a relaxing weekend, the animals are fed 10am and 2pm on the weekends. A beautiful wedding ceremony was held here, with the lake as a backdrop.

Auburn botanical gardens is another hide out and least known fabulous park in Sydney west. During weekends, 4$ entry fee is applicable for residents living in suburbs other than Auburn,Granville & Guildford. The garden is classified into various sections such as Japanese Garden, Fauna reserve,duck pond & scented garden etc., Feel like heaven in Japanese garden before you get excited... More
