A gem in small unknown Betty's Bay, a well kept botanical garden with lots of indigenous species of plants, especially proteas. Various short walks. Lovely restaurant with good food, coffee and craft beer.

The drought was playing havoc with the spring flowering but the birds were happy while the wind was not blowing! There are some interesting walks for the able bodied but some easy strolls for those less able. Nicely planted with beautiful indigenous plants which attract numerous birds. Well worth visiting.

Lovely formal gardens with a great diversity of plants . Longer wilderness trails open to all and some very long trails which you have to have a key to access . Plenty of baboons around. Nice waterfall easily accessible
Cafe and clean toilets

We did not have much time to spend at the gardens, but the time we did was well worth it. The different plants, the river and waterfall ensured a great visit. I would like to see the garden when all the different species of indigenous plants are in full bloom - that must be an amazing experience. Definitely worth a visit.
