Any time throughout the day is a good time to walk through this incredible park. Every corner offers something different. Bats in one tree, lizards everywhere. At night come back because the possums..... more »
An unexpected find not far from the shops. Lots of beautiful and strange trees. Relaxing place to walk or just to sit by the river. Mad people jogging in the heat. Lovely ornamental water ponds... more »
Some beautiful old trees. Would love to climb them. But cant. Had some little market stalls there. Wad good to pick up a cold drink n something to snack on. Was a wedding going on while there and thought i was a beautiful back drop for such an event. Beautiful flowers in bloom too. Lots of space to have a game of backyard cricket etc. Loads of shade to just chill n relax.
Absolutely fantastic place! Such a nice spot to relax and have a picnic. I always love visiting the markets there on a Sunday and looking at the flowers. Ive done a few photoshoots there too and will be doing our engagement shoot this weekend in the gardens. Just a great spot!
