This is one of the new style botanic gardens, featuring local native plants almost exclusively and with very few manicured garden beds. Prunings, mulch and natural ground covers help to create and sustain this natural environment, resulting in a collection of beautiful healthy plants.  

Only started in 2002 some areas of the Gardens are still being developed but already there are three separate sections of well established rainforest and other specialised gardens.  While geared to conservation, biodiversity, education and research, these Gardens are also a wonderful place for recreation, relaxation and play, with picnic areas, free BBQ and established walking paths, some of which are wheelchair accessible.  

Free guided walk on the last Sunday of every month, except in December.

Volunteers who are interested in helping at the gardens are welcome every Wednesday morning from 8am.
