“Breathtaking bay views and stunning gardens”

Relaxing stroll through stunning gardens of such diversity with surprises wherever you look. Breathtaking bay views and amazing crater landscape and meandering ferny walks to discover birds and friendly animals and stunning sculptures. We were warmly greeted by Ann Maree who made us feel very welcome. A definite must see and experience for yourself.

“An absolute must do!!”

Why have we not heard of this place before?!
The thought, care and design of this place is amazing.

Meander through the beautiful gardens whilst the symphonic cacophony of sounds from birds frogs and bees relax and follow you on your journey through the different botanical areas.

The gardens compliment the stunning views of the peninsula from this place, definitely worth going on a nice clear day.

The owners are very friendly and accommodating with tea coffee and slices on arrival and an introduction to the four legged friends that wish to share ones slice and have a stick thrown or a pat, you’re made to feel very welcome.

Creativity and nature have worked here, and we would recommend a visit for sure. Certainly inspired me to do more at my place!
