Spent about 3 hours here with two teenagers just walking through the gorgeous gardens and soaking up the ambience in the cafe. Stunning place with amazing views. Well worth the entry fee. Vegans, vegetarians and the gluten free will adore it.

We went for a drive today from Byron to this look at this attraction. Having been established over 45 years ago this place has magnificent gardens , good fresh food and gives you the experience of visiting a small corner of Nepal without the plane ride. If your Buddhist, a Gardner, or planning a tropical garden with water features and tranquil areas, this is a must for you. A small cafe provides good wholesome local dishes.

If you get a chance you must visit Crystal Castle such a beautiful and tranquil place to visit, with amazing views, lush gardens and some phenomenal crystals. The big Buddha water feature is sensational - it’s beauty is astonishing! There is also a lovely cafe and a gift shop to purchase some crystals, books etc.

This destination is so enchanting, it is almost magical. Giant geodes, and pathways lined with giant rose quartz- lead you into this place of wonder. Inside, you step through the beautiful gardens- full of plants so curious and unique, amidst beautiful statues, budhas, and giant crystals- set in a giant bamboo and tropical rainforest that will leave you awestruck! Wow! Wow!
