    Beautiful gardens with a great variety of plants and interesting areas.
    My daughter and I were fascinated by natures artistry on display in so many different ways in these magical gardens. It helped that the air stirred with white butterflies and the odd beautifully coloured one. We are going to return in Spring as the gardens present a different display according to the season. As there are water features and the region enjoys a good rainfall, I do recommend that you to bring mosquito repellant. We took our time meandering through the grounds and took lots of photos. We really enjoyed the tranquility of the more wooded areas and the bird life. Visiting these charming gardens was a real highlight of our trip.

    A wonderful experience
    We visited these gardens and were very happy. We received a warm welcome from Wayne. The gardens are obviously a labour of love and very well set out. I enjoyed seeing plants in a lovely garden setting. The sculptures add to the experience. People need to realize this is a private home and garden. I can certainly appreciate not wanting children running amuck and unintentially destroying plants. It's not a playground or public park, but somewhere to experience peace and the beauty of gardens for those interested in nature.

    Hidden gem off the beaten track
    This garden is simply amazing. It has incredible hedges, topiary, statues, a pond, walkways, hidden nooks, multiple statues and acres of flowers. And a gift shop. Worth a visit any time of the year. Spectacular. Highly recommended

    Red Cow Farm not to be missed.
    LOVE LOVE LOVE this expansive garden of many "rooms" and themes and lake. We have been there before and will go again, probably Sept/October. We spend many hours sitting under the trees, inhaling the fragrances, breathing the fresh air. Highly recommended.

Well worth the visit!
The gardens are much bigger than you first think with meandering paths, glistening ponds and the mellifluous sound of bird life hiding in the trees. It was tranquil and peaceful with unplugged beauty - balm to the soul.
A surprise was a peek into the world of Narnia, with unbridled nature and statues of characters straight out of C.S Lewis's books. It felt as though I had somehow stepped through the wardrobe for a short while.
To top of off the staff were very friendly and made me feel welcome, chatting to me at the end of my visit.
I want to see this garden again, as I'm sure it will hold a different appeal with the changes seasons. Well worth the stop!

This amazing garden is well-worth the entry fee. I have visited twice at different times of the year and both experiences were amazing. A combination of formal and informal gardens with little surprises around every corner and gorgeous flora and fauna in every nook and cranny.
The owner is very welcoming and friendly as are his two gorgeous dogs.
A must-see for locals and visitors to the Southern Highlands. Make sure your camera is at the ready!

If you love gardens this is one you should not miss. It’s like stepping into another world. There are different areas show casing the many different plants that are suited for the region. The Iris’s were in bloom and just beautiful. The roses were of the old fashioned variety and had a beautiful fragrance. There is a gift shop where you can buy a variety of things and also you can buy some of the plants that are grown in this garden. Do not miss seeing this when visiting the southern highlands. If you have young children they need to be supervised as there is water.

Garden is 10/10 absolutely beautiful, have wanted to visit for a long time. Unfortunately upon arrival we were met by the owner who came across extremely rude and rambled on about us not being able to take our pram in with our 10 month old baby, said it was due to insurance policy? Was more dangerous carrying her around as the ground was uneven is some parts……the pram would of been fine handling any part of the garden.

Also got a lecture on having to keep my 4 year old on a leash and that he wasn’t allowed to run around?

Not family friendly, not kid friendly, not pram friendly and only white Australia welcomed who do not have kids.

I visited the garden in late September, just after it had re-opened after the Winter break. It was early in the season but still well worth the visit. A magnificent garden. It is beautifully laid out and easy to walk around. There are many places to sit and contemplate the beauty. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and would recommend it to all garden lovers.
